The temporary halt in residential evictions originally issued by CDC has been extended through March 31, 2021.
Per the USDA:
“This moratorium allows the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development to extend relief to the tens-of-thousands of rural Americans nationwide who rely on USDA-supported multi-family housing. The halt in evictions applies when the tenants certify that they meet the following criteria:
- All adults in the household have attempted to obtain any available government assistance for rent;
- The household meets annual income limits of $99,000 per individual or $198,000 per couple;
- The household is unable to pay full rent due to a loss of household income or extraordinary medical expenses;
- Timely partial payments have been attempted; and
- Eviction would likely make the household members homeless or force them into an unsafe shared living arrangement.”
CMI remains committed to providing financing for multi-family rental housing for families in rural areas and is actively working with the USDA.
