Last Friday, the US Department of the Treasury released rules to guide localities with the distribution of the $46.5 billion in emergency rental relief. The rules simplify the application process, expand legal aid to tenants, and require programs to demonstrate that the most vulnerable tenants are receiving the aid. The Biden administration hopes the new rules will help localities that have experienced obstacles and have been slow to distribute funding. The issuance comes two days after a federal judge in the District of Columbia struck down the nationwide eviction moratorium.
