Princeton University’s Eviction Lab published a new report finding that at least 1.36 million eviction cases were avoided last year from the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) from the American Rescue Plan. It also found that low-income and majority-Black neighborhoods that typically see a disproportionate share of eviction cases experienced the largest absolute reduction in filings, consistent with Treasury data showing that over 80 percent of ERA funds reached the lowest-income renters. Last week, Treasury announced that 4.3 million ERA payments have been made to households through January 2022 as funds continue to increase their reach to households across the country.
