Governor Northam announced a temporary statewide moratorium on eviction proceedings that begins today, Monday, Aug. 10, and continues through Sept. 7. This ruling is a critical step in keeping Virginian families in their homes.

The Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program provided an initial $50 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Relied and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding for households in Virginia facing eviction and foreclosure due to COVID-19.

There are several resources available for tenants who are unable to pay their rent because of COVID-19.

Fairfax County is also working with local landlords to launch a housing stability pledge for residents who demonstrate a significant financial impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.

For help with utility, housing or food assistance, please call Fairfax County’s Coordinated Services Planning team at 703-222-0880.
