Overturn of CDC national eviction ban likely to have no impact on Illinois housing providers and their tenants
A U.S. federal court ruling that stopped the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) national eviction moratorium will likely have no impact on the state of Illinois’ moratorium, which remains in effect through May 29, 2021.
As more people become vaccinated and unemployment assistance claims continue to fall, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has indicated he is reviewing the moratorium for any potential changes he feels are appropriate, but no changes were made in the latest round of Executive Orders. Illinois REALTORS® will continue to monitor and provide updates if and when the situation changes.
The state is nearing its launch of the latest round of relief money distribution. The 2021 Illinois Rental Payment Program, funded by federal relief dollars, is expected to begin accepting applications this month. Specific details on the program can be found on the following website https://www.ihda.org/about-ihda/illinois-rental-payment-program/.
Here is Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Dabney L. Friedrich of the District of Columbia. Read Judge Friedrich’s opinion.
