The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued on January 29, 2021 an order extending the federal moratorium on evictions for nonpayment of rent through March 31, 2021 following the directive issued by President Biden.
This is an excerpt of the most recent e-newsletter sent out by the National Low Income Housing Coalition on Friday, January 29, 2021.
The eviction moratorium – previously slated to expire on January 31 – will help keep millions of renters stably housed during the pandemic. Without this critical action by the Biden administration, tens of millions of renters would have been at immediate risk of losing their homes this winter, with enormous, negative consequences for individuals, families, communities, and our nation’s public health and economy.
The steps taken by the CDC are critically needed; they are not, however, enough to protect renters during the pandemic. In addition to extending the eviction moratorium, the Biden administration must strengthen and enforce the order.
