Multifamily Properties Subject to Federal Eviction Moratoriums

The CARES Act provides a temporary moratorium on evictions for most residents of federally subsidized apartments, including those supported by HUD, USDA or Treasury (Low Income Housing Tax Credit developments) as well a moratorium on filings for evictions for renters in homes covered by federally-backed (FHA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac) mortgages for 120 days after enactment.

This searchable database and map allows some renters to identify if their home is covered by the CARES Act eviction moratoriums.

Denver Human Services: Document runner service offered to new clients without internet
We recognize many people in need of assistance may lack the resources to access online applications. Denver Human Services is bringing the process to you by piloting a document runner service for new applicants who need application paperwork and cannot access it due to our facility closures and/or mobility issues.
 
People who need an application can call our special document delivery hotline, 720-944-1520, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, and our document delivery team will leave an application at their door. Once the application is completed, residents just place it in the provided, sealed envelope and call the same hotline to schedule pick up.
 
This service is available to Denver residents in need of paper applications for assistance with food (TANF/SNAP/Medicaid), child care (CCAP), utilities (LEAP), EBT cards, and child support services.
 
Note that this service is provided only for new clients. Those with existing DHS cases should call 720-944-4DHS (4347) or contact their eligibility technician directly. For those with internet access, visit www.denvergov.org/humanservices.
