To keep housing at the forefront of lawmakers’ minds, MHI and its housing coalition sent a letter to Congress explaining the operational challenges for rental housing brought on by the continued existence of the Coronavirus Aird, Refiled, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The Act had created a temporary notice procedure that required housing providers to notify covered residents 30 days before filing for eviction due to rent nonpayment. While the other elements of the CARES Act have been repealed, this 30-day notice to vacate has continued. The letter urged lawmakers to cosponsor S. 3755, the Respect State Housing Laws Act, which would end the CARES Act’s 30-day notice to vacate and restore eviction procedures to the state and local level. The House version of the bill, H.R. 802, has passed out of committee and is now up for consideration on the House floor.
