The economic crisis caused by the Coronavirus pandemic has left many Americans struggling to pay basic expenses.

The Oklahoma Access to Justice Commission and Foundation has asked ODL to share the following information to help Oklahomans struggling with rent payments or facing possible eviction.

Rental Assistance

There is emergency rental assistance available statewide through mid-November.

  • In Tulsa County people should apply at tulsahousing.nanmckay.com
  • In the Oklahoma City metro people should apply at okccp.org
  • In the rest of the state, people should:
    if they have received a Notice to Quit or a court summons, contact oklaw.org
    if they have not received a Notice to Quit or court summons, but know they won’t be able to make rent, apply at okccp.org

Eviction Moratorium

The Centers for Disese Control has declared a national moratorium on evictions through the end of the year, and it applies to almost all renters. In order for this moratorium to protect individuals, they must complete a declaration and give it to their landlord, and affirmatively present it at court if they have an eviction filed against them. The declaration and more info are available from Legal Aid at:
