On August 26, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision ending the CDC eviction moratorium. If you’re unable to make your rent payments, you’re not alone -- here are options and resources to help you get back on your feet.
See if you’re protected under a state or local eviction moratorium
Even though federal protections have ended, some state or local moratoriums are still preventing evictions.
Financial help is available for renters and landlords
Federal rental assistance is currently being rolled out to communities across the country. State and local programs are taking applications now from both renters and landlords for emergency rental assistance, which may help cover back rent and utilities, as well as future rent and other housing costs.
