Global Financial Markets Center | Preventing an Eviction Crisis

There is an imminent eviction tsunami as a result of the lapsing at year-end 2020 of Covid-19 related relief under the CARES Act and the CDC's eviction moratorium. Come January, renters will owe close to $70 billion in unpaid rent by the time it comes due, or $5,400 for the typical family that has fallen behind, and up to 8.4 million renter households, which include 20.1 million individual renters, could experience an eviction filing. This event will bring together housing experts and policymakers to discuss the coming eviction crisis and propose bipartisan policy interventions.

Appearing: Joseph A. Smith, Jr. (Duke Law), Leslie Winner (NC Leadership Forum), Laurie Goodman (Housing Policy Center, Urban Institute), Jesse McCoy II (Duke Law), Debbie Goldstein (NC Leadership Forum), Ashanti Brown (Durham Housing Authority), Rick Glazier (NC Justice Center), Steve Powel (Situs), Sherry Yarborough (Apartment Association of NC), J. Adam Abram (NC Housing Finance Agency), Lori Jones Gibbs (PNC Financial Services), and Richard H. Moore (former NC State Treasurer).
