Statement from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez on Eviction Moratorium

July 23, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14) released the following statement on the eviction moratorium.

"I urge the Biden Administration to extend the CDC’s eviction moratorium. It is reckless not to extend the deadline when rental assistance funds have not gone out fast enough to protect people. Eviction filings have already spiked in anticipation of the moratorium being lifted. New data also suggests the vast majority of the 6 million households with rental debt are in counties with high transmission rates of the delta variant. We must protect the vulnerable and do everything in our power to prevent a mass eviction crisis"
