The Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) released a systematic review of COVID-19 research and data on renter experiences. “Renters’ Responses to Financial Stress During the Pandemic” outlines the extent of renter financial hardship, how renters have responded to income loss, and effects of financial hardship. The report also highlights gaps in current research to inform future data-collection efforts. These gaps include data on renter experiences that are disaggregated by race, property type, and geography. To mitigate renters’ financial hardship, the authors recommend continued cash assistance, decreased barriers for rental assistance, and investments in better data on renters’ financial stability and eviction risk.
