The Day wants to speak with renters and landlords

Connecticut's eviction moratorium ended about a month ago, but Gov. Ned Lamont has instituted an executive order that delays the eviction process through Sept. 30. for tenants who don't pay.

A federal eviction moratorium that had expired this past weekend was extended on Tuesday to Oct. 3.

The Day would like to speak with southeastern Connecticut residents who are at risk of being evicted from their homes, and with landlords who are at risk of bankruptcy or foreclosure because they haven't been able to collect rents.

How does the extension of eviction moratoriums affect you?

Since April, UniteCT has distributed more than $45 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds in Connecticut. The state was given more than $235 million to distribute in all, but politicians, landlords and tenants alike have complained about the efficiency of obtaining relief through UniteCT.

Have you been able to access rental relief funds via UniteCT without issue?

Are you a landlord who relies on rent money from tenants? What has your experience using UniteCT been like?
