The COVID-19 pandemic has had outsized impact on the rental market. Renters who have lost work have faced serious risk of eviction but have also been buoyed by a patchwork of programs and policies. Some of the burden of supporting tenants has fallen to landlords, who suffer cashflow constraints when tenants are unable to pay their rent.
As the CDC moratorium on evictions has ended, we look to researchers and practitioners to understand what has happened and what comes next for tenants, landlords, and the rental market. What are the risks that remain? Are current policies managing them effectively? What lessons can we carry forward to ensure rental housing needs are met?
Join us for what promises to be an engaging and interactive conversation during our FedTalk on October 7.
