Tell Gov. Inslee to Extend and Expand the Eviction Moratorium Today!
April is now upon us, and many people across Washington are unable to afford their rent. As more and more people are losing their jobs or having their hours cut due to economic effects of COVID-19, we must ensure that all renters are protected from eviction during this emergency.
Washington's moratorium on evictions will end on April 17th, leaving many households vulnerable to losing their homes and our state’s homelessness crisis worsening, UNLESS Governor Inslee extends the moratorium. In addition, the moratorium must be expanded to include manufactured homeowners, cover tenants whose leases are expiring, and to prohibit fees from accruing. We must also demand rental assistance for tenants who fall behind on their rent to ensure they can remain in their homes once the moratorium is ultimately lifted.
PLEASE use the form to the right to let Governor Inslee and your state lawmakers know just how critical it is for them to take urgent action to keep people in their homes during this pandemic.
As always, customizing your email to include how your housing situation is being impacted by COVID-19 will help make your email even more powerful.
NOTE: If your landlord is trying to evict you during the current moratorium, the Attorney General's office can help you enforce your rights. Fill out a complaint form for the quickest response. Copy and paste this link: https://bit.ly/3dOo18b

Please note that the Attorney General’s office is only able to respond to tenants with eviction notices and will not be able to answer general questions or assist tenants without notices during this time.
