Executive Order D2020 051 signed by Governor Jared Polis on April 30 placed a moratorium on evictions and late fees for failure to pay rent that will expire on May 30, unless it is extended. The same executive order grants the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), Division of Housing (DOH) the authority to provide a template for renters and landlords to make payment arrangements, which may be initiated by either party to prevent late amounts from becoming immediately due when the moratorium expires.
