HUD Urges Localities to Prevent Evictions by Using Grant Funds

Citing the August 8 Executive Order by the Trump Administration, “Fighting the Spread of COVID-19 by Providing Assistance to Renters and Homeowners,” HUD reminded all grantees that received Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) or Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds that they may use these funds to provide rental assistance or other aid to individuals experiencing financial hardship related to the COVID-19 pandemic and are at risk of being evicted. In its press release, HUD also announced its toolkit for landlords and Public Housing Authorities to help ensure protections against evictions and foreclosures.
