Federal Eviction Moratorium Extended Through June

Two days before the federal eviction moratorium was set to expire, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended it through June. The extension comes as more than eight million households owe back rent, and the health and economic effects of the pandemic persist. “The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historic threat to the nation’s public health. Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings—like homeless shelters—by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said CDC director Rochelle Walensky.
