Dear Partner in Eviction Prevention:

Hardships from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to be felt across the economy.  The federal eviction moratorium expires this week, on July 31st.  

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) partnered on a housing assistance website to help homeowners and renters during the coronavirus pandemic.

We are reaching out to you to be sure that homeowners and renters are aware of the many resources available to prevent displacement through eviction and hope that you will share this website.  Attached you will find a toolkit that you can use to share the CFPB resources.

Also, for your awareness, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness has developed a Step-by-Step Guide for renters that are at risk of eviction.  You can find the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) guide at the following link:  Step-by-Step Guide for People at Risk of Eviction

Please note that resources are continually developing as our federal, state and local partners respond to resident needs.  Please contact us with any questions about the resources we are sharing here.

With your support, we can make a difference in the lives of many homeowners and renters reeling from the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Florida Statewide Conference Part 1 included panelist discussing the need for housing counseling for foreclosure avoidance assistance from the St. Petersburg Neighborhood Housing Services and partnering as a comprehensive resource from Jacksonville Legal Aid and St. Johns Housing Partnership.
