Rental Assistance Available to Help Renters and Landlords

The federal moratorium on evictions that expired at the end of last week has now been extended to October 3 in counties with “substantial and high levels” of virus transmission, covering areas where 90 percent of the U.S. population lives. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has published a Rental Assistance Finder to help renters and landlords avoid eviction. It can help them understand the resources available to help navigate various financial hardships related to the pandemic. Please help get the word out to your patients. CFPB has promotional materials (like flyers) and sample social media messages/graphics you can easily use.
