White House Directs HUD to Cease Evictions Through April 30

Dear NAA Members,

President Trump today announced he is directing the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to suspend all evictions and foreclosures through the end of April 2020. This follows similar actions by governors and mayors in several jurisdictions across the country. Nationally, at least 35 jurisdictions announced eviction moratoriums in light of the spread of COVID-19 with more considering legislation or mandate by judicial action or law enforcement. No details of the President’s order have been provided yet, but NAA is in direct communication with HUD leadership and we are assured that guidance is coming soon. 
 
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced it has directed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to suspend foreclosures and evictions for at least 60 days due to the coronavirus national emergency. To clarify, the FHFA foreclosure and eviction suspension applies to homeowners with an Enterprise-backed single-family mortgage.
 
We will keep you apprised as this situation develops and are continually updating our COVID-19 resources and guidance.

Thanks,

Robert Pinnegar, CAE
President and CEO
