The immediate crisis of mass evictions has been averted with the latest covid stimulus bill that Congress passed in late December. Thank you to everyone who contacted their federal legislators to urge action on the eviction crisis. The next step will be working at the state level to get the funds to renters and landlords who have been affected by Covid. We are hopeful that Governor Roy Cooper and the North Carolina General Assembly will be able to work together to direct federal funds into the HOPE program. If snags are encountered though, please be prepared for a possible letter writing campaign to our state legislators.
