Like most jurisdictions, D.C. had an eviction moratorium in place during the COVID pandemic lock-down, but now those protections are being lifted. Notices are being sent to tenants, and the Landlord & Tenant branch of D.C. Superior Court is gearing up for a wave of new cases. Meanwhile, the federal government is providing substantial rental assistance nationally to help renters pay off rent arrearages; tenants and landlords in the District are applying for these funds under the STAY D.C. program. Join us to examine the phased lifting of the moratorium, as provided by D.C. Council legislation, and the effects, both short and long-term. Legal service attorneys, housing providers and D.C. government officials will provide analysis and predictions.
