FHFA Eviction Moratorium Property Lookup Tools

Evictions in federally subsidized properties are frozen until at least Feb. 28, 2021. The Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) announced on May 4, 2020, that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have developed online multifamily property lookup tools to help renters find out if they are living in units protected from evictions during the pandemic because the properties have federally-backed loans.

Purpose of the Fund

Eviction Prevention COVID-19 Relief Fund is designed to prevent a wave of new eviction cases and aid low-to-moderate income households that are delinquent on rent payments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Landlord Tenant Rental Assistance Program will not reopen for applications at this time.

 

Amount of Grants

Eligible households may receive assistance for past-due rent dating back to April 2020, plus an additional three months of assistance for future rent payments if needed to ensure housing stability.

According to federal regulations, eligible households must:

  • Qualify for unemployment or have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19;
  • Demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability; and
