Household Rental Debt During COVID-19: UPDATE FOR AUGUST 2021

Abstract: This research update provides new estimates of rental debt that households have accrued because of job loss or involuntary part-time work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this update is to provide national and state stakeholders with updated estimates of pandemic-related rental debt as we approach the end of the national eviction moratorium implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).1 These estimates should be interpreted as the amount of rental debt existing prior to the distribution of emergency rental assistance.
