The federal eviction moratorium, implemented by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to slow the spread of COVID-19, is set to expire on July 31.
Dr. Eva Rosen is an assistant professor at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, where she studies poverty and housing policy. The week after it expires, she can speak about topics including:
The short- and long-term effects of eviction on individuals, families, and communities;
How landlords use the eviction process to collect rent from tenants;
The difference between an eviction filing and an executed eviction;
How many people have been protected from eviction by the moratorium, and what may happen to them next; and
What is known about the circumstances of people who face eviction, including socioeconomic factors, employment status, and racial and ethnic disparities.
