CDC will extend the national eviction ban through June 30

March 30, 2021: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has extended the national ban on evictions through the end of June. “The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a historical threat to the nation’s public health,” CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said. “Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19,” he added. The eviction ban was about to expire in two days, and advocates warned of a spike in evictions without an extension.

Likely informing the health agency’s decision to continue the ban for the next three months is that mass evictions could undermine the country’s attempts to control the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the researchers, evictions to continue in the states caused as many as 433,700 excess cases of Covid-19 and 10,700 deaths in the U.S. amid March and September when the CDC ban went into effect nationwide.
Around two federal judges have questioned the power of the CDC to ban evictions. And property owners have criticized the policy and said that landlords couldn’t afford to keep the housing people for free anymore.
“Short-term policies like eviction moratoria leave renters accruing debt and jeopardize the ability for rental housing providers to provide safe, affordable housing,” said Bob Pinnegar, president of the National Apartment Association.
According to House Experts, it was senseless allowing the eviction ban to expire before rental assistance reaches people. Congress has now allocated above $45 billion in aid for renters, but it could take some more months for the money to be disbursed.
The CDC’s eviction ban is applicable to individuals who earn below $99,000 per year and couples who make below $198,000. To qualify, renters also have to attest to a declaration to their landlord that they cannot afford their rent and that being evicted could almost make them become homeless.
