On Thursday, August 26 the Supreme Court ruled to end the eviction moratorium extension put in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The eviction moratorium extension was set to continue through the end of October to support homeowners as the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to impact the country. Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs wants local residents to be aware of this decision, and prepare to take appropriate steps should additional support be needed. A full slate of housing referrals via the City can be found online at: https://city.milwaukee.gov/Strong/HousingHelp.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to no longer allow the eviction moratorium is disappointing, but I want to make sure residents who may be in need of support are aware of this decision and have the tools needed to act accordingly,” said Alderwoman Coggs. “There are many local organizations and programs available to provide assistance, and I ask everyone to share this info with friends, family or neighbors who could benefit.”
