MHI’s National Communities Council and COVID-19

During these unprecedented and challenging times, ensuring that families remain secure in their homes is of utmost importance. MHI’s National Communities Council (NCC) members are on the front lines of this national emergency, as states across the country have issued stay-at-home orders. As millions of residents are confined to their homes, our members have answered the call to serve—providing impacted residents flexible rent payment options, postponing scheduled rent increases, and providing additional resources and support including services like free lunches, grocery deliveries, and information about employment opportunities and filing for government benefits.


As conditions continue to evolve across the country, MHI has compiled a chart outlining state actions limiting or prohibiting evictions in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. MHI will make every effort to keep this chart updated. We also encourage you to refer to state and local authorities for the most current and comprehensive tenancy laws and ordinances.
