To stop Americans from going through the heartache of eviction, President Biden is taking new steps today.
Nearly 33% of the nation will be spared evictions for the remainder of this month because to State eviction moratoria. But there is a need for action in the remaining States.
State and local governments have long had access to Emergency Rental Assistance, a $46.5 billion plan to safeguard millions of Americans facing heavy rental debt and potential eviction during the pandemic,
Thanks to the bipartisan COVID relief act Congress passed in December 2020 and the American Rescue Plan Congress and the Biden Administration enacted in March 2021.

Some States and towns have proven their capacity to distribute these payments to renters and landlords effectively when they are in need. But despite the fact that the Biden Administration started allocating funding in February, too many States and towns have been too tardy to take action.
President Biden is once again urging all organisations that may prevent evictions – from cities and states to local courts, landlords, and Cabinet Agencies – to swiftly act to avoid evictions in light of the Supreme Court verdict and the ongoing risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The bipartisan COVID relief act that Congress passed in December 2020 and the President’s American Rescue Plan that was enacted in March 2021 made $46.5 billion in emergency rental assistance funds available. The President continues to urge state and local elected officials and judges to issue local eviction moratoriums and to act quickly to distribute these funds.
Additionally, the President urges landlords to apply for rental assistance rather than evict tenants, and he supports Attorney General Garland’s calls for state and local courts to adopt rules that will discourage eviction actions until landlords and tenants have applied for emergency rental assistance funds.
