Two brief summaries written for residents explain the eviction moratoriums included in the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.” A two-page summary in both English and Spanish was prepared by the National Housing Law Project (NHLP), Alliance for Housing Justice (AHJ), and NLIHC. A one-page summary was prepared by the National Alliance of HUD Tenants (NAHT). The NAHT summary is also available in Spanish and Russian.
The NAHT summary discusses the $1 billion appropriated by the CARES Act for private owners of HUD-assisted multifamily properties (Project-Based Rental Assistance properties). NAHT reminds tenants in Project-Based Rental Assistance properties and those with Housing Choice Vouchers who have experienced reduced or lost income have the right to seek an immediate reduction in rent, effective the first day of the following month.
