The eviction moratorium has ended, but another one kicks in. Here’s what it means

One national ban on evictions came to an end Thursday, but another moratorium is ready to take its place Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a moratorium Sept. 4 on all evictions and foreclosures around the U.S., citing health risks and the possibility of further spread of the COVID-19 virus because of homelessness.

The CDC moratorium expired at 11:59 p.m. Dec. 31.

In its place comes another eviction moratorium, part of the $900 billion bipartisan stimulus package passed by Congress and signed by President Donald Trump on Dec. 27. The 5,600-page bill allocates $25 billion in rental relief funds for renters and landlords. The bill stretches the eviction moratorium until Jan. 31. The money will be sent to states to distribute.

According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, Florida will receive $1.43 billion in rent relief funds. The money is earmarked for households making 80% or less of the area’s median income. (In Miami-Dade, a household of four people would need to earn $73,210 or less to qualify. A household of one person would need to earn $51,200 or less.)
