COVID-19 Housing Protections: Moratoriums Have Helped Limit Evictions, but Further Outreach is Needed, Report to Congressional Committees [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Highlights: "Millions of renters and property owners continue to experience housing instability and financial challenges during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. To address these concerns, Congress and CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] created eviction moratoriums, and Congress appropriated $25 billion to Treasury to disburse to state and local grantees to administer emergency rental assistance programs to help those behind on their rent. The CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Act includes a provision for GAO [Government Accountability Office] to monitor federal efforts related to COVID-19. This report examines, among other objectives, (1) how eviction moratoriums have contributed to housing stability during the pandemic and (2) Treasury's implementation of the Emergency Rental Assistance program."
