Tens Of Millions Face Prospect Of Evictions During Pandemic



President Trump’s executive order that was meant to extend a federal eviction moratorium due to the Covid-19 pandemic actually does very little. While Trump claimed it would, “solve that problem largely, hopefully completely,” others have said it will do nothing to help the tens of millions of Americans who are on the precipice of homelessness.

Unemployment is widespread and with relief payments expiring and rent payments due the US appears to be on the brink of a massive and housing crisis unprecedented in the modern era.

Zach Neumann, Founder of the Covid-19 Eviction Defense Project, lawyer whose practice focuses on landlord-tenant, debt collection, and wage dispute cases. He is also a public policy lecturer at CU Denver’s School of Public Affairs and writes about jobs and economic issues at the Aspen Institute.
