On September 4th, 2020, the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an order halting residential evictions for non-payment of rent if certain conditions are met. An eligible tenant needs to sign a declaration and send it to their landlord. You can find the CDC Order HERE. This order expires on March 31, 2021.
If you are at risk of eviction or behind on your rent, you should contact Legal Aid of Nebraska to find out if you are eligible for eviction protection.
