The federal eviction moratorium was issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on September 1 to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The unprecedented moratorium will last until December 31 and protects millions of renters at risk of eviction. This Briefing will provide an overview of the national moratorium, the protections it offers and its limitations, as well as who is eligible. The Briefing will examine the intersection with other state and city eviction orders and what renters need to do to protect themselves. The Briefing also will address what renters may expect when the moratorium expires and what legal services and other nonprofit organizations can do to help renters understand their rights and options.
