CDC extends final eviction moratorium for 30 days
The Biden administration has issued a 30-day extension to the temporary halt in residential evictions, the CDC announced on Thursday.
Why it matters: The eviction moratorium, implemented to prevent a wave of evictions caused by pandemic-related economic decline, was scheduled to expire on June 30.
- According to the CDC, this order is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium, which is slated to expire on July 31.
- "Keeping people in their homes and out of crowded or congregate settings — like homeless shelters — by preventing evictions is a key step in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19," the CDC said.
- Landlord groups have appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn the moratorium arguing the order "will prolong the severe financial burdens," per NBC.
