This is the July 27, 2021 hearing on "Oversight of Pandemic Evictions: Assessing Abuses by Corporate Landlords and Federal Efforts to Keep Americans in Their Homes," held before the House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of James E. Clyburn: "We are here today to discuss an issue of utmost importance: ensuring that the coronavirus pandemic, which has already resulted in a loss of life for more than 600,000 Americans, does not result in the loss of stable homes for millions more. As the coronavirus pandemic ravaged the Nation, millions of Americans lost their jobs and faced significant challenges making ends meet. For these Americans, one of the most pressing challenges has been ensuring that the loss of a job does not also mean the loss of a roof over their families' heads. [...] As Americans continue to get vaccinated and our economy continues to improve, we must work together to prevent the pandemic from precipitating an eviction crisis. Congress has already taken action to ensure that American families are not evicted from their homes. We must ensure that the law is followed and the rental assistance funds that Congress provided are accessible to all who need them." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jim Baker, Katrina Chism, Diane Yentel, Rene Solis, and Joel Griffith.
