Dear Mobile Housing Authority Tenant(s):
We value our relationship with our tenants and wanted to reach out to you again during these difficult
and uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures being taken to reduce transmission of
the virus, have meant adjustments and changes for all of us. As we’ve continuously stated, the Mobile
Housing Authority wants to work with you on any rent hardships you may have.
As you know, the CDC issued a moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent. Following the
initial announcement, the moratorium has been repeatedly extended. There will be no further
extensions. The moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent ended Saturday, July 31st ,
2021. Because the moratorium has ended, all tenants who are delinquent or past due on rent payments
are now eligible for eviction and all past due rent is immediately due- in full. For some, this amount
may be an extreme hardship as it is due in lump sum.
We know some of you may still be experiencing financial challenges. Though Mobile Housing
Authority cannot waive or reduce any past due rent payments, we are offering a Repayment Program to
offer some flexibility in bringing your account current.
Terms of 60 Day Repayment Plan Program
Mobile Housing Authority will not initiate evictions for nonpayment of rent for a period of 60 days,
beginning August 1, 2021, for qualifying tenants. To qualify, the tenant must complete the following:
1. Schedule a meeting with your Property Manager to assess your financial circumstances no
later than August 13, 2021, and
2. Apply for Emergency Rental Assistance resources through Legal Services of Alabama (1-866-
456-4995), Mobile County Treasury Emergency Rental and Assistance Program (855-209-
4970), or other rent assistance programs, no later than August 20, 2021; and
3. Enter into a repayment agreement with Mobile Housing Authority no later than September 1st ,
This program will end September 30, 2021. If you have not entered into a repayment plan and
followed the steps above by September 30, 2021, we will have no choice but to proceed with filing an
eviction for non-payment of rent for the entire past due balance.
To avoid the filing of an eviction, please contact your Property Manager today and follow the steps
above by the deadlines. All meetings must be scheduled by appointment only as our management
offices continue to be closed to the public due to COVID-19.
