Housing advocates warn of ‘wave of evictions’

The Story

COVID-19 has set up a looming eviction crisis, affordable housing advocates say. Emergency programs put in place to stem the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic have helped people stay in their homes. But there are about 40,000 people who are at risk of losing their homes once temporary rent and mortgage assistance programs preventing evictions end, said Judy Johnson, project director for Prosperity’s Front Door. “There’s a wave of evictions waiting,” Johnson said during an affordable housing conference Tuesday. Prosperity’s Front Door released its annual housing “scorecard” Tuesday. The organization is a statewide network of business, government and nonprofit leaders working toward goals outlined in 2018 by the Governor’s Task Force on Housing.
