News from Representative Larson

Dear Friends,  

Over the weekend, the federal eviction moratorium expired. The pandemic is far from over and I am a cosponsor of the legislation to reinstate it immediately.  

In the mean time, there is still help available. You may be eligible for $15,000 in rental assistance and up to $1,500 electricity payment assistance through UniteCT. You can learn more and apply for assistance here or at 1-844-864-8328. This program is funded by the American Rescue Plan that I voted for earlier this year.  

Additionally, under Governor Lamont’s Executive Order the following requirements are in place for evictions:  

  • Requires landlords to apply for the UniteCT rental assistance program prior to delivering an eviction notice for nonpayment of rent; 
  • Requires landlords to give tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent, for lapse of time, or whose right to occupy a unit has terminated at least 30-days notice prior to beginning an eviction; 
  • Provides those tenants an opportunity to continue all terms of the lease by paying outstanding rent within the 30-day period; 
  • Requires all eviction notices to be delivered with in both English and Spanish; and 
  • Requires a stay in eviction proceedings of up to 30 days if either the landlord or the tenant applies to the UniteCT program. 

If you need additional assistance because of the end of the eviction moratorium, such as legal advice or other utility assistance you may also contact:
