Eviction Moratorium is about to expire, millions of people will be on the streets

Since the end of August 2020, the U.S. government has issued a policy for many tenants who have been reduced or even lost their source of income due to the epidemic, that is, Eviction Moratorium. Under this law, it is forbidden to expel tenants who did not pay rent between March 1 and August 31 due to the epidemic. Likewise, tenants who cannot pay rent due to the epidemic from September 1 to January 31 are also prohibited from being evicted. Still, they must pay at least 25% of the rent owed during this period. John Pollock, director of the National Civil Rights Advisory Coalition (NCCRC), said: “Eviction Moratorium ensures that there is sufficient time to allocate Congress’s emergency housing subsidies to millions of tenants in need; otherwise, they will be evicted. .”

Diane Yentel, the chief executive of the National Coalition for Low-Income Housing (NLIHC), pointed out that the eviction of people is related to the spread of Covid-19 and the increase in mortality. Therefore, the government should extend Eviction Moratorium during the epidemic.

The implementation of this law is because the US government authorities worry that many people who are unemployed due to the epidemic will be driven to the streets because of their inability to pay their rent, which will further aggravate the epidemic. Therefore, this prohibition on eviction of tenants was established. In addition, the government will also review about 45 billion US dollars in rent relief funding as soon as possible to solve the problem of rent arrears by tenants. People who want to apply for a moratorium must also sign a legally binding affidavit stating they have experienced financial difficulties directly related to Covid-19.

On January 29, the law was extended to June 30 because the epidemic situation did not improve. However, with the arrival of June, the employment situation in the United States has not improved. The aforementioned $45 billion in rent relief funding has not yet passed the review. The National Low-Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) is worried that with the reactivation of the eviction order, millions of people will be driven to the streets in the future. . .
