Eviction Action Resources

If you've received an eviction notice and have been affected by COVID-19, you may qualify for Memphis and Shelby County's Eviction Settlement Program, which directly pays landlords. Renters and homeowners having trouble paying rent or mortgages due to COVID-19 may also qualify for the CDC's Eviction Declaration, protecting you from eviction. To learn more and apply for the programs, visit United Housing's COVID-19 Resources page here: http://home901.org/covid-resources/
