Statement from Bob Pinnegar, National Apartment Association (NAA) President & CEO, on the ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court striking down the CDC’s new Eviction Order:
The National Apartment Association (NAA) has long held that the CDC’s eviction moratorium is unlawful and is pleased with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down the order. The government must move past failed policies and begin to seriously address the nation’s debt tsunami which is crippling both renters and housing providers alike. Only by moving past moratoriums can we ensure America’s 40 million renters have affordable homes today, tomorrow and in the future.
Though the moratorium is lifted, it is important to remember that billions in debt remain on renters’ records and housing providers’ shoulders – it’s past time to focus on the most sustainable path forward of full rental assistance funding and streamlined distribution. Together, we can keep Americans housed and preserve critical rental housing infrastructure.
