Policy Areas Housing
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread unemployment, millions of Americans are facing eviction, or are taking on unsustainable debt, dipping into savings, and cutting food and medications to afford rent. The federal government must make housing policy central to any COVID-19 relief package; this involves instituting a national eviction moratorium that bars evictions and foreclosures, forgiving rent for all renters, and mortgage payments for all homeowners, affordable housing providers, and small landlords, allocating rental relief payments to small landlords and affordable housing providers who comply with renter protections, and more, till the end of the pandemic.
