Eviction Moratoriums – Updated 9/22/2021
The Supreme Court recently invalidated the most recent CDC eviction moratorium; however, recent information from the Department of Housing and Urban Development offers guidance.
HUD programs and resources should be sought out by all Americans who are seeking assistance in avoiding eviction, relocating to new homes in the event an eviction moves forward, and fighting unfair evictions. HUD also has a responsibility to assist landlords, owners, Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), and all its stakeholders in weathering this public health crisis.
Additional HUD resources include the following:
- Rental Housing Counseling and Eviction Prevention
- Tools for Landlords with Tenants Impacted by COVID-19
- Tenant Guidance: Rent Repayment Plans
- Homeless System Response: Strategies for Eviction Prevention
- NFHTA Forum: On the Brink: The Looming Eviction Crisis of the COVID-19 Pandemic
If you're a renter having trouble paying your rent, utilities, or other housing costs – or if you're a landlord trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation – help may be available through HUD's rent relief resources.
