Protections for renters during COVID-19
The CARES Act, which was recently passed by Congress, provides certain protections for most tenants in federally subsidized or federally backed housing, including limits on evictions and fees for not being able to make your rent payment.
Some states and local governments have taken action to offer rent relief.
In addition, there are a number of resources and professionals who can help with your housing or financial situation, including nonprofit credit and housing counselors.
