NATIONWIDE — The federal ban on evictions has expired, putting millions of tenants at risk of losing their homes. 

Established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in September 2020, the federal eviction moratorium was designed to help tenants falling behind on rent due to the surge of unemployment during the pandemic, as well as prevent the spread of COVID-19.   

Last month, the Biden administration extended the federal eviction ban for the fourth time. 

The ban was set to expire at the end of June, but was extended to July 31 in what was intended to be the final extension. 

On Saturday, July 31, the nationwide moratorium on evictions expired, putting millions of renters across the U.S. at risk of being forced out of their homes unless they pay back their rent.

For Virginians in need of rental aid, the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development is offering assistance through its Rent Relief Program.

The program is designed to provide financial assistance for rent payments for eligible households across the commonwealth during the pandemic.
