On Friday evening 6/11/21 Governor JB Pritzker issued EO 2021-13 which:
· Creates new categories of “covered” and “non-covered” people.
o Covered people provide their landlord or property owner with a declaration proving that they:
§ Earned $99K or less in 2020;
§ Are unable to make their housing payment due to COVID-19-related hardship;
§ Clearly attempted to pay housing; AND
§ Eviction would render them homeless.
o If those criteria do not apply, or the tenant does not provide a declaration, they are a “non-covered person.”
· Extends eviction indefinitely for covered people.
· Extends eviction moratorium for non-covered people who do not owe rent through June 25.
o Allows evictions of non-covered people who do owe rent.
o Allows all evictions of non-covered people after June 25.
· State and local law enforcement have been instructed not enforce eviction orders for covered or non-covered people through June 25.
o After June 25, they will begin enforcing order for non-covered people only.
