The United States Congress has passed a law (the CARES Act) that prevents federally subsidized landlords from filing new eviction cases or giving termination notices based on nonpayment of rent, fees, or other charges. This law applies only to landlords who provide subsidized housing. And it only applies to terminations and evictions based on nonpayment. Other state and local laws may also apply to renters who do not have subsidized housing. The CARES Act will be in effect from March 27, 2020, to July 25, 2020.
