In the midst of tough times due to the health and economic impacts of Covid-19, there is still much to be grateful for in the Bronx and at University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP). Almost a year into our transition to remote work and UNHP has managed to find a way to make significant strides towards our mission.
You may have heard about an Eviction Moratorium during Covid-19, that prevents tenants from being evicted during the Covid-19 crisis. It is true that there are many protections for tenants in place, but tenants must act to be protected. A moratorium places eviction on pause but does not cancel owed rent- so eviction proceedings can begin on renters who owe back rent when the moratorium is lifted.
Job losses and reduced incomes amid the Covid-19 crisis have placed many US families at risk of eviction when safe housing is more important than ever. In this blog post, UNHP looks at the various national and state eviction protections as well as data from the Office of Court Administration better understand what is going on with Housing Court and evictions in the Bronx and NYC.
