As expected, President Biden decided to extend the CDC’s national moratorium on evictions, which is now set to end on Wednesday (June 30). A one -month extension, where said the administration would be the last such extension, will also give Democrats more time to distribute billions of dollars in pandemia aid and rent aid. The moratorium will continue to operate until July 31.
The White House decision, confirmed Thursday morning, follows reports that Democratic California dominated California the government is considering extending the moratorium for Californians while also paying landlords for lost rent. Democratic policy winks also warn that ending the moratorium could start a relatively less severe eviction crisis.
Since this is the last connection (at least, this is what the White House said), Biden and his team have been working to stop a wave of evictions. For starters, the linkage could only be part of the execution of executive actions planned by the administration involving several federal agencies to help pay for the impending death moratorium. This will include a summit on housing affordability and eviction, to be held at the White House later this month, every NOW.
The White House also plans to increase coordination with local officials and legal aid organizations to reduce evictions after July 31, and it is also drafting new guidance from the Treasury Department intended to streamline the tam -is payment of $ 21.5 billion in emergency aid included in the pandemic relief bill in the spring. In total, about $ 50 billion has been allocated for rental assistance and assistance for low-income housing since the pandemic began.
🚨BREAKING: President Biden will await the federal lifting of the 30-day moratorium and activation of the government’s entire approach to avoidance / avoidance of deportation, as we have urged. Now we need to redouble efforts to get the ERA to the tenants who need it to keep the home strong. https://t.co/p7QYA0ywWK
