Trustee Confirmation Notes for December 9, 2021

Below are my case recommendations for the Chapter 13 Confirmation Hearings scheduled for 2:30 pm on December 9, 2021.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FILE IS PASSWORD PROTECTED. THE PASSWORD NEEDED TO OPEN THE FILE WILL BE PROVIDED BY SEPARATE EMAIL.

Please review the recommendations and respond to me BY EMAIL.  I would like to resolve all of the cases that can be resolved prior to the hearing, so please get back with me on these cases as soon as you can.

If there is uncertainty over an issue or recommendation, please also review the objection I have filed in the case. When appropriate I try to include sufficient detail in my objections so that the issues can be understood and addressed.

My cutoff to submit resolutions to Court is Noon on the Tuesday before the Docket. If I have not received an email reply or approval for my recommendations on a particular case by then, the case will be added to the “Call” list and will be announced and heard when the Docket is called.
“Call” means the Court will call the case unless a different agreement is reached.

Emergency Rental Assistance Programs

Kansas Bankruptcy Community:

The widespread economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected both individuals and families who have fallen behind on rent, as well as landlords who rely on rental income to meet their own expenses. As federal and state eviction moratoria expire, millions of American households could face displacement from their homes in the coming months. This could potentially spur an increase in bankruptcy filings.

Through funding from the Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program, there are a wide variety of state, territorial, tribal, and local government programs that have been tailored to address the special needs of communities during these difficult times. The U.S. Trustee Program (USTP) has partnered with the Treasury Department to help raise awareness about ERA in the hopes of helping individuals to avoid bankruptcy altogether or, at a minimum, better position debtors to exit bankruptcy successfully. 

To assist in this effort and ensure that debtors are informed about relief that may be available to them, the USTP has prepared the attached Informational Notice (Notice) on ERA programs that is also posted on our website:

https://www.justice.gov/file/1438876/download

The Notice provides an overview of ERA, along with links to learn about available options by state (and, in some cases, county), get answers to frequently asked questions, or find a HUD‑approved housing counselor, among other things. A Spanish version of the Notice is also attached.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or require further information.
