NATIONAL HOUSING & HOMELESSNESS NEWS & UPDATES

National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH)

Alliance Statement on Supreme Court Eviction Moratorium Decision

National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC)

Supreme Court Lifts CDC Eviction Moratorium, Millions of Renters Immediately at Risk

The Supreme Court ruled to end the temporary stay on a lower court ruling seeking to overturn the federal eviction moratorium issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In doing so, the Supreme Court’s ruling invalidates the federal eviction moratorium, eliminating vital eviction protections that have kept millions of households – predominantly people of color – stably housed.

For Renters in Need of Assistance

If you or someone you know needs emergency rental assistance:

  • Call 2-1-1 or visit www.211.org. 2-1-1 will connect you to a local call center that can share information about local programs that might be able to help.
  • Find your local rental assistance program using NLIHC’s database. More than 1,000 emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs have been created or expanded the pandemic, and Congress has provided $46 billion to help renters remain stably housed. If you haven’t yet, apply right away – it will take time for the money to get to you and your landlords.
  • Contact a legal aid attorney. Get further guidance from a legal aid attorney. A list of legal aid organizations can be found here and here.
  • Contact your representatives and senators. District office staff often know of available state/local resources, and it’s very important that your members of Congress hear about the housing challenges you are facing.

Case Conferencing and Coordinated Entry (CE) Training

If you have any questions about these meetings or are interested in coordinated entry access point training for you or your team, please contact Mac Lyons at: mlyons@aceh.org

What is CE? CE is a triage process to connect individuals experiencing homelessness to necessary resources. It is a federally mandated program that recognizes communities rarely have enough resources. There are three main goals of CE: prioritize the most vulnerable, streamline the experience for providers and unsheltered people, and provide data to inform decisions regarding the structure of and need for services.
