Extension of Eviction Ban Leaves NMHC, NAA “Deeply Disappointed”
The multifamily sector’s two leading organizations said Monday they were “deeply disappointed” by the decision to extend the Centers for Disease Control’s eviction ban through June 30. The CDC’s action marks the third extension of the ban since it was announced last September.
In a statement, the National Multifamily Housing Council and the National Apartment Association said, “After grappling with the financial distress of the pandemic and eviction moratoriums for more than a year, housing providers have few resources left. Another extension only serves to exacerbate the challenges facing the rental housing industry and does not address the underlying financial stress of apartment residents, instead forcing households to accumulate insurmountable levels of debt.”
In addition, NMHC and NAA said, “moratoriums do nothing to deal with the continuing housing affordability challenges that our country was already facing before the onset of COVID-19.”
