On March 27, 2020, the president signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (P.L. 116-136) into law. Section 4024 of that legislation imposes a temporary moratorium on evictions. This moratorium went into effect immediately upon the enactment of the CARES Act on March 27, 2020 and lasts for 120 days (through July 24, 2020).
HUD has issued Q&As to provide guidance on how the temporary moratorium applies to certain dwelling units assisted by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) loans (including Section 108 guaranteed loans), Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) loans, and CDBG-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) loans.
