Evictions in the Phoenix Area Doubled After Moratorium Ended

After the federal eviction moratorium ended, evictions in Maricopa County nearly doubled from August to September. Maricopa County and cities in the Phoenix metropolitan area received about $124 million in emergency funds and have distributed 83 percent, or about $103.5 million, to landlords and tenants. Still, many Arizonans are still at risk of eviction. “We are seeing many tenants who are getting judgment from landlords who aren’t willing to work with them to get rental or won’t renew leases because they want to raise rents,” said Pamela Bridge, director of advocacy and litigation at Community Legal Services.
