Can't Pay Your Rent because of Covid-19?

Many people have to pay rent at the beginning of the month, but many people have lost jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic. If you can pay your rent, or some part of your rent, you should do so. When rent is not paid, the owner, also known as the landlord, can evict the renter. Normally, this means that if you and your family are the renters and you do not pay the rent, you may be forced out of your home. However, these are extraordinary times. 

If you cannot pay your rent, we want you to know that the governor of Nebraska has delayed court hearings for eviction. To avoid eviction, you will need to show that you cannot pay because of the pandemic. We do not know how this may affect ongoing evictions.  More information here: 

Also, the mayor of Lincoln has called on landlords to stop evictions for now. Here is part of a news release from the Mayor’s Office. 
"I want to recognize how many of these local property owners and managers are already reaching out proactively to tenants and to their lending institutions to try to find solutions and make the best of a very difficult situation," said Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird. "We are calling upon others in this industry to follow their lead. I also ask tenants to communicate with landlords about any financial difficulties they are facing as soon as possible. Property managers, owners and tenants all are facing economic uncertainty, and open communication will ensure better outcomes for everyone involved."

Food Stamps - Also Known as SNAP

The government is in the process of creating a special food-assistance program, called P-SNAP (for Pandemic - Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). It is not yet available, but the state has told us that it is coming soon. State officials have also told us that:

* If you are on SNAP now but receive less than the maximum, your allowance will be increased to the maximum.

* If you are not on SNAP now but could qualify, it will be easier and quicker to apply and get benefits.
