30 Aug Urgent Update for Renters: End of the National Eviction Ban
If you are one of the 11 million Americans having trouble paying rent, you should know you are no longer protected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s ban on evictions.
This ban would have been in effect until October 3rd, if it hadn’t been struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court last week. In some states, more than 25% of renters are behind on their payments.
You still have options if you worried about paying rent or the possibility of eviction, including emergency rental and utilities assistance. Find state and local emergency rental assistance programs here.
If an eviction lawsuit has been filed against you, you may qualify for free or low-cost legal help. Find legal assistance in your area here.
It is also important to know that you may be protected by a state, county, or city eviction ban. For example, California and Washington have eviction protections that end September 30, while New York state extended protections against evictions to January. New Mexico's state supreme court has halted evictions with no current end date.
