Rental assistance touted as eviction moratorium overturned
September 9, 2021
The U.S. Supreme Court has overturned the moratorium on tenant evictions that was announced by CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky a few weeks ago. The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) has responded by urging Wyomingites who are in danger of facing eviction to seek assistance through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP).
“We strongly encourage Wyoming landlords and renters to work together and apply for ERAP funding, which can pay unpaid rent and up to three months in advance rent at a time,” states a press release from DWS in response to the decision.
