NHLA Statement on June 24, 2021 extension of eviction moratorium

Posted Jun 24, 2021

Statement from Elliott Berry, Co-Director of the NHLA Housing Justice Project: 

"This extension can be a tremendous benefit to both tenants and landlords by providing more time for tenants to apply for emergency rental assistance. The program has already sent millions of dollars to landlords, but it takes time for the Community Action Agencies to process the applications. This extension could save thousands of tenants from eviction, pay landlords millions of dollars in past due rent, and bring utility bills current. Every tenant who has had trouble paying their rent or is facing financial hardship for reasons that are in any way related to the COVID-19 pandemic should apply for assistance right away."
