Colorado’s eviction moratorium expired with 2020

Gov. Jared Polis this week extended several pandemic-related executive orders, but lengthening the duration of the state’s eviction moratorium was not one of them.

That order, most recently put in place in October and extended by the governor in November through the end of 2020, expired on Friday. A federal eviction moratorium is in effect through the end of January.

Last fall, Colorado’s Special Eviction Prevention Task Force warned in a report that between 150,000 and 230,000 households in the state could be at risk of eviction by the end of 2020.
