US Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) says a newly signed executive order issued by President Joe Biden will extend the federal eviction moratorium and the moratoriums on foreclosures of federally guaranteed mortgages until the end of March 2021.

Without action, these protections would have expired on Jan. 31, 2021.

“These extensions will stop evictions for thousands of Hawai‘i residents who are struggling to make their mortgage or their rent,” said Sen. Schatz. “For renters, this new order will allow the millions of dollars in emergency rental assistance for Hawai‘i included in the latest COVID-19 relief bill to begin to be distributed.”

A full resource guide for homeowners and renters with eligibility information and program details is available here.
