CDC Extends Federal Eviction Moratorium

On March 29, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed an extension to the federal eviction moratorium, further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments. In January, President Joe Biden directed the CDC to extend the moratorium — scheduled to expire January 31, 2021 — to at least March 31, 2021. Dr. Walensky’s signature extends the moratorium through June 30, 2021. By allowing people to remain in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings like homeless shelters, preventing evictions can be a critical strategy to stop the spread of Covid-19 and avoid the multiple harms associated with the loss of housing.
