Today’s Action: Call on your representatives to unilaterally extend the federal eviction moratorium!

An estimated 7 million tenants in the US were behind on rent as the nation’s federal eviction moratorium expired in July. While President Biden attempted to extend the moratorium in a race against the clock, the conservative-majority Supreme Court deemed it unconstitutional in late August — and since then, things have been stagnant. We need the House to pass new legislation to extend the moratorium now. Without it, more than a million people could be facing imminent eviction.

Some states have been using pandemic aid as emergency rental assistance, but distributing those funds has proven extremely challenging in some cases. Many months into the crisis, only about 11% of the $47 billion dollars in aid has been distributed to renters and landlords to help prevent evictions.

The Supreme Court ruling demands that Congress extend the moratorium unilaterally. We need everyone to keep the pressure on their representatives until the House sets new legislation in motion — it’s the only way to protect millions of renters from eviction.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and demand that they prioritize new moratorium legislation, and quickly!

We are living through extraordinary, parallel crises. The housing market is skyrocketing, rental assistance programs are struggling, and families everywhere are facing thousands of dollars in back rent and utilities exacerbated by the pandemic. Without an extension of the federal eviction moratorium, we can expect homelessness throughout the nation to rise dramatically.

Call (202-224-3121) or write your representatives and demand they extend the federal eviction moratorium immediately! Remind them that stable housing for millions of Americans depends on their willingness to act.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling schools to protect kids from reckless unvaccinated adults and require masks during the delta surge, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
