On Thursday, May 14, Gov. Gary Herbert announced that the eviction moratorium for non-payment of rent imposed on April 1 would expire on May 15. The Utah Housing Coalition and its members encourage the public to inform themselves, friends and families on what they need to do if they can’t pay rent and therefore face eviction, according to the Utah Housing Coalition.
The YouTube links below provide practical and urgent information. Share them on all social media outlets (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and the like) so Utahns at-risk can avoid evictions and the long-term negative consequences on their financial stability and ability to obtain credit, coalition officials urge.

Renters should immediately communicate with their landlords if they cannot pay rent to work out a possible repayment schedule. Tips on how to communicate with landlords are on the coalition’s website in English and Spanish. More resources are available on the COVID-19 website.
