Federal Eviction Moratorium extended through
June 30, 2021
Despite several court rulings declaring the measure unconstitutional, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) extended its eviction moratorium, further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments.

The moratorium that was scheduled to expire on March 31, 2021 is now extended through June 30, 2021. On April 6, 2021, HUD released updates to its Multifamily Q&A for COVID-19 and CDC Order to Temporarily Halt Evictions Q&A.

The LIHTC/HOME Procorem Tenant Event Portal recently changed! New fields in the portal became available on April 23. They are:

  • Other Non-Optional Charges

Section 8 rental assistance is to be captured in the Federal Rental Assistance field and the appropriate source selected from the dropdown. The Non-Federal Rental Assistance field should indicate $0.00 if none is received. The same applies to the Other Non-Optional Charges field. If the property is charging a monthly Non-Optional Fee, include the amount there, otherwise enter $0.00.
