HUD Evictions Guidance
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that invalidated the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) eviction moratorium, HUD is using every tool at its disposal to help safeguard the millions of Americans now in danger of losing their homes. View the HUD Evictions Guidance to learn more about the actions HUD is taking to help prevent evictions.
HUD programs and resources should be sought out by all Americans who are seeking assistance in avoiding eviction, relocating to new homes in the event an eviction moves forward, and fighting unfair evictions. HUD also has a responsibility to assist landlords, owners, Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), and all its stakeholders in weathering this public health crisis.
HUD and its partners are taking action to help prevent evictions, including:
- Fighting unfair evictions
- Providing legal assistance
- Keeping people housed
- Connecting people with rent relief
- Providing tools to help PHAs, HUD-assisted landlords and tenants, and people experiencing homelessness
Eviction prevention resources, tools, and training for HUD’s grantees will continue to be posted to HUD Exchange as they are available. A selection of resources include:
- Rental Housing Counseling and Eviction Prevention
- Tools for Landlords with Tenants Impacted by COVID-19
- Tenant Guidance: Rent Repayment Plans
- Homeless System Response: Strategies for Eviction Prevention
- NFHTA Forum: On the Brink: The Looming Eviction Crisis of the COVID-19 Pandemic
If you’re a renter having trouble paying your rent, utilities, or other housing costs – or if you’re a landlord trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation – help may be available through HUD’s rent relief resources.
