Coalition Opposes Eviction Moratorium Extension
This week, a coalition of national associations, representing for-profit and non-profit housing owners, operators, developers, lenders, property managers and cooperatives involved in the provision of affordable and conventional rental housing, urged Congressional leaders to reject an extension of the federal eviction moratorium.
As America progresses down the road to economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we must end emergency measures in the housing sector and instead focus on the distribution of the nearly $50 billion in federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program (“ERAP”) funds provided by Congress earlier this year.
We urge Congress to reject further extensions of federal eviction moratoria and, instead, continue to work with the Administration on focusing on providing rental assistance implementation resources and on helping grantees with the disbursement of those funds to those residents and housing providers in need.
Our organizations are committed to working with the Administration and Congress to ensure that ERAP is a success, to help residents regain housing stability, and to preserve the viability of the rental housing sector.
