Eviction Moratorium Extended:

Gov. Beshear reminds Kentuckians that the CDC has extended its moratorium on evictions through March 31, 2021. The Governor renewed a previous executive order mandating that the CDC moratorium apply in Kentucky. The CDC order and the tenant declaration required by the CDC order and by the Governor’s order are available online.

Rent & Utility Relief Fund:
More Rent & Utility Assistance for Kentuckians will be available starting February 15, 2021. KY has newly available COVID-19 rent & utility relief! Starting February 15, you can apply for assistance, dating back to April 2020. For information or to apply, visit http://teamkyhherf.ky.gov


Utility Disconnection Moratorium:

The Kentucky Public Service Commission is ending its moratorium on disconnections for nonpayment for the utilities it regulates on Oct. 20. To ensure there are protections when that begins, the Governor signed an executive order that ends the statewide moratorium on disconnections for nonpayment on Nov. 6, but takes additional steps to help Kentuckians.

The executive order designates $15 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds for the Healthy at Home Utility Relief Fund, which will provide relief for Kentuckians at risk of natural gas, water, wastewater or electric service disconnection.

The order will also require utilities to create a payment plan for residential customers that runs no less than six months. It will continue to waive late fees on utility bills for residential customers through Dec. 31, 2020.
