Statewide Iowa — Some 30-thousand Iowans say they will likely lose their housing due to eviction in the next two months, according to a recent federal survey. Renters and service providers are bracing for a surge in evictions, as a federal moratorium is slated to expire next week.

The eviction orders are expected to have an impact on Iowans’ ability to find housing for years to come, according to Ericka Petersen of Iowa Legal Aid.

With affordable housing shortages in communities across the state, Petersen says some renters are finding themselves at a loss for where to go next.

Qualifying Iowans can get rental assistance to help pay down their bills. More information is available by calling 855-300-5885.
