Eviction Moratorium Lifted

This past Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court ended the CDC's eviction moratorium.

In their order, the justices wrote, “The moratorium has put the applicants, along with millions of landlords across the country, at risk of irreparable harm by depriving them of rent payments with no guarantee of eventual recovery. Despite the CDC’s determination that landlords should bear a significant financial cost of the pandemic, many landlords have modest means.”

With 50 billion in rental assistance the goal is to start utilizing these programs in place of the moratorium. "No housing provider wants to evict a tenant—it is always a last resort and reserved for the rarest cases. The best solution for all parties is rental assistance, and all energy should go toward its swift distribution."
