Instead, they should start working quickly with their landlords and with assistance agencies to secure their housing. Andrew D. Neuhauser, managing attorney for Community Legal Aid, said the Joe Biden administration has given no indication the federal moratorium will be extended past June 30.

“The first thing they should do is get in contact with the landlord. If they missed payments over the last 16 months or so, get in contact about payments,” Neuhauser said. Trumbull County Action Program and Mahoning-Youngstown Community Action Partnership offer financial assistance, but acting quickly to secure the assistance is important, he said. Call 330-393-2507 for TCAP and 330-747-7921 for MYCAP.
If tenants lack the money to pay the bill off, they should not get intimidated and avoid the situation, he said. It is important to act quickly, he said.
“Reach out as quickly as possible. They have a lot of applications to handle, so they should start the process as soon as possible to get the process going,” he said. “Let the landlord know what is going on, and let them know you are borrowing money from family, about to get back to work, or you’re getting financial assistance,” Neuhauser said.
Neuhauser said he is concerned about a possible “wave of evictions.” He also said people should keep the landlord in the loop.
“There are a few things going on at the same time. There has been an eviction moratorium in public housing for a while, so once that is lifted, there may be a lot of evictions because of a backlog, and with private landlords, too. Some have been hesitant to go through with evictions and may have put them on hold. But now, there is probably a backlog that could make things difficult for all involved in the eviction process,” Neuhauser said. He also said people should keep the landlord in the loop.
