Disease Control and Prevention is extending an order aimed at preventing evictions through June.
More than 8 million American households are behind on their rent, according to the Census Bureau. And housing groups have warned that allowing the CDC’s protection for renters to lapse would set off a tsunami of evictions.
“The extended moratorium and its enforcement are essential to help millions of families remain in their homes,” says Diane Yentel, president of the National Low Income Housing Coalition. She says states and local communities need the time to distribute billions of dollars in emergency rental assistance approved by Congress to help renters catch up.Federal Eviction Moratorium Extended Just 2 Days Before Expiration – AAOA
