EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 7X
Tuesday, April 28, 2020
The Enfield Housing Authority is maintaining essential operations. We want to make sure you are aware of this as we are continuing to provide services for our valued residents and participants. If you are experiencing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please be sure to discuss this with your housing coordinator. If you have had a change of income due to the current situation, we will process changes and rent adjustments ASAP. However, if you do not inform us, we cannot work with you to make the adjustments.
On Friday, April 10th Governor Lamont, through Executive Order No. 7X, announced certain protections for Residential Renters Impacted by COVID-19. Please see the reverse side of this notice for the section of Executive Order No. 7X that pertains grace periods and other protections. We respect and appreciate what the Governor is doing and agree that those experiencing hardships directly related to the CoVID-19 outbreak need flexibility. However, it is important to understand that this is not a “rent holiday” and the full rent will still be due once the grace periods expire. We are strongly encouraging everyone who has the ability to pay their rent on time, continue to do so.
The $1,200 Federal Stimulus Payments and State of CT unemployment benefits are starting to be distributed. We hope these actions help those in need to have enough money to buy food and to pay priority bills such as rent during these hard times. If you are in need food, you are encouraged to contact the Enfield Food Shelf. They are located at: 96 Alden Avenue, Enfield, CT and may be reached at 860-741-7321 or www.enfieldfoodshelf.org.
Please note, all payments and paperwork may be put in the drop box at the Pearson Way main office or sent by US Mail. Documents may also be faxed to us at 860-741-8439. Please be sure to contact your housing coordinator with any questions or concerns.
Stay Safe, Stay Home!
