As we close out 2021, it's important to prepare ourselves for the new year ahead. I am reminding all of our constituents that the New York Eviction Moratorium is set to expire January 15th, 2022.
This is a final reminder to please fill out the appropriate Hardship Declaration Form below if you are either a tenant or homeowner behind on payments, and if you have experienced any financial hardship due to COVID-19.
The hardship declaration form is collected by Kings County Housing Court and will protect you from eviction or foreclosure proceedings. After you fill it out, take a picture of the completed form on your phone, then send it over via email to kingshardshipdeclaration@
For any additional support or specific questions concerning the Hardship Declaration Form please visit the NYC Housing Court website or call 718-557-1379.

COVID-19 Booster Shots
Governor Hochul recently declared a state of emergency due to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19. This variant is highly transmissible, and evades existing immunity more easily than previous variants of COVID-19. Cases are rapidly increasing in our city, and health experts recommend receiving the booster shot to ensure you have the strongest available protection against COVID-19.
Many vaccinated New Yorkers are now eligible to receive the Booster dose, which is available via walk-ins and appointments at locations across the city. Click here to find a vaccination site near you. If you still have not received the first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, we encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as possible for your safety and for those around you.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office with any issues or concerns. My district office can be conveniently reached by email at senatorsalazarsoffice@gmail.
I hope you and your loved ones have a Happy New Year!
Senator Julia Salazar, SD18
