Lucas Metropolitan Housing to extend Eviction Moratorium


TOLEDO, January 28, 2021: Consistent with our commitment to reevaluate the need for an extension on our eviction moratorium thirty days prior to the expiration of the current date—February 28, 2021—LMH President and Chief Executive Officer, Joaquin Cintron Vega, has authorized an extension that is applicable locally until Friday, April 30, 2021.


LMH understands that housing insecurity was already at a crisis level nationally and locally before COVID-19. LMH proactively issued its own eviction moratorium that extended beyond federal mandates. This moratorium applies to evictions for nonpayment of rent. The agency has extended the moratorium several times and will continue to do so as necessary into 2021.


The temporary moratorium on evictions for nonpayment of rent and fees and penalties related to nonpayment of rent, applies to all tenants, regardless if employment was affected by COVID-19. LMH alerts its residents that any rent missed during the moratorium will accumulate and still be due when the eviction moratorium is lifted.


For any unpaid rent during the moratorium, the family must repay LMH or sign a repayment agreement to pay any amount owed after the moratorium has ended. LMH is working with its residents to educate them about the process.



“LMH understands that eviction has a serious impact on community homelessness and housing instability. As an anti-poverty organization, LMH has many safeguards in place to ensure that the individuals and families it serves remain housed,” stated Cintron Vega.


LMH has over 2600 units in the Low-Income Public Housing Program and serves approximately 17,500 residents across all its programs. LMH understands the cost of homelessness to families, children and to our community. It works hand in hand with community partners, like the Toledo Lucas County Homelessness Board, to provide housing resources for special population groups — for example, the chronically homeless. It will continue to find other resources that can ensure that everyone in Lucas County has a place to call home.


LMH will continue to reevaluate the need for an extension to this policy 30 days prior to the current expiration date.
