A new issue of HUD’s Evidence Matters focuses on evictions in the United States, including disparities in eviction rates, social and economic impacts, and evidence-based mitigation strategies. One article, “Eviction Prevention Initiatives,” highlights programs curbing evictions in Philadelphia, PA, Grand Rapids, MI and Colorado. Using a combination of rental assistance, housing counseling, and legal aid, these programs have prevented numerous evictions during COVID-19 and have laid the groundwork for permanent programs to further housing stability.
