CDC Eviction Moratorium Declaration
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a temporary eviction moratorium.

The moratorium is effective Friday, September 4, 2020 through December 31, 2020. This order may protect

you from being evicted if you cannot make full rent payments. This order does not stop evictions against

tenants who do not meet its financial stress requirements.  And, even for tenants who do financially qualify,

landlords can still evict for reasons other than nonpayment of rent.

** It is important to remember that when the moratorium expires at the end of the year, renters who

received protection will still need to make up missed payments to their landlords.

Due to the state of Oklahoma implementing the new REAL ID law, the Grace Center of Southern Oklahoma
