"North Carolinians need relief to help make ends meet during the pandemic," said Governor Cooper. "Extending housing and utility protections will mean more people can stay in their homes and stay safe as we all work to slow the spread of this virus."
"North Carolinians want to pay their rent, but for far too many people – through no fault of their own – that's just not possible right now," said Attorney General Josh Stein. "We are in unprecedented times that call for unprecedented action. I support Gov. Roy Cooper's extension of the moratorium on evictions to ensure that people do not face homelessness in the midst of this health and economic crisis."
The Council of State concurred on this Executive Order with no objections.
