30-40 Million People in America at Risk for Eviction

Did you know that by the end of 2020, an estimated 30-40 million people in America may be facing eviction?

A new report, The Eviction Crisis, studied how the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated housing insecurity in America.

The report pulls together existing research related to the COVID-19 housing crisis such as eviction filings and unemployment data. Using this information, the article paints a distressing picture of the growing risk of eviction across the nation. It estimates that 30-40 million people in America may face eviction by the end of 2020.

According to a recent U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey, evictions are already on the rise. Eighteen percent of renters were unable to pay July’s rent on time and 33% of renters have slight or no confidence that they can pay August rent on time.
