19 Oct New HUD Rule Aims to Prevent Public Housing Evictions
October 11, 2021
The Biden administration is trying to prevent evictions from public housing for nonpayment of rent, seeking to shore up protections following the end of the nationwide eviction moratorium.
Under a new rule from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), tenants in HUD-subsidized public housing cannot be evicted for nonpayment without providing them 30 days’ notice and providing information about available federal emergency rental assistance. The rule was scheduled to be published Thursday in the Federal Register.
