NAHMA Update: Administration Issues Call to Action on Rental Assistance, New Local Resource Portal & Toolkit

July 28, 2021

Dear NAHMA Members,

Having hosted two White House convenings on eviction prevention over the past month, the Biden Administration has indicated it will continue to enact an all-of-government effort to ensure renters and landlords can receive rental relief.  As part of that effort, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) unveiled a new resource portal today ( that allows renters and landlords to find emergency rental assistance programs in their local areas.  

Additionally, please find attached a toolkit for stakeholders that includes information on how to raise awareness about the rental assistance resources available to tenants and landlords. The toolkit includes examples of key messages, sample social content, fliers, and other resources that may help promote the new tool and resources available for both renters and landlords. With the eviction moratorium set to expire this Saturday (July 31) the Biden Administration has stated, "it will continue putting out a call to action to government agencies, companies, advocates, nonprofits, the faith community, and more to inform them of the new CFPB tool and make sure that renters and landlords are able to access the available rental assistance." 

Please note that these resources will continue to be available to renters and landlords beyond the expiration of the eviction moratorium.
