The CARES Act (coronavirus stimulus bill) contained provisions halting many evictions for tenants in properties covered by a federally-backed mortgage for 120 days from its enactment (from March 27 until August 24).

The bill provides a temporary moratorium on evictions for nonpayment of rent for most residents of federally subsidized apartments, including those supported by HUD, USDA or Treasury (Low Income Housing Tax Credit developments). The bill also institutes a moratorium on filings for evictions for renters in homes covered by federally-backed mortgages for the same period. To ensure that the court isn’t evicting a tenant in violation of this Act, The Housing Verification form is available for plaintiffs to fill out before receiving a judgment, swearing that their property is not subject to this moratorium. Landlords can go to the TDCHA website here and click on "HTC Property Inventory (XLSX)" under Additional Guidance and Resources to search a database to determine if their property is subject to the LIHTC restrictions, and can go to this website to check their property against a multi-family housing database.
