Despite federal moratorium, eviction rates returning to pre-pandemic levels

The Idaho Policy Institute, with Princeton University’s Eviction Lab Tracking System, described the predicted impact of eviction moratoriums and local aid funds expiring on Idaho’s eviction rates. With the pandemic’s impact on unemployment and the lack of affordable housing options, the expiration of pandemic-related aid could mean that renters across the country will be facing eviction risks even higher than pre-pandemic when the moratorium expires, now extended to July 31, 2021. The authors note that households affected by the pandemic and facing months of back rent are likely to be in difficult straits as housing becomes more expensive and less available. #covid-19 #housing
