Will the eviction moratorium be extended in 2021?


Yes. In December, 2020, Congress passed a coronavirus stimulus package that will extend the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s national eviction moratorium through the end of January, 2021.

It was previously set to expire on December 31, 2020.

Low-income housing advocates are urging the Biden administration to extend the moratorium for additional months, as soon as President-elect Biden assumes office. But there is no confirmation yet on if this will happen.
