ARLINGTON, VA | June 23, 2021 – The National Apartment Association (NAA) has released the following statement from Bob Pinnegar, NAA president and CEO, in response to the extension of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) eviction order:
The National Apartment Association (NAA) remains fundamentally opposed to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) eviction order. Each passing month further escalates the risk of losing an ever-increasing amount of rental housing, ultimately jeopardizing the availability of safe, sustainable and affordable housing for all Americans. Flawed eviction moratoriums leave renters with insurmountable debt and housing providers holding the bag as our nation’s housing affordability crisis spirals into a housing affordability disaster. The CDC must abide by their promise and allow the moratorium to expire at the end of July.
The National Apartment Association (NAA) serves as the leading voice and preeminent resource through advocacy, education, and collaboration on behalf of the rental housing industry. As a federation of 149 state and local affiliates, NAA encompasses over 93,000 members representing more than 10.5 million apartment homes globally. NAA believes that rental housing is a valuable partner in every community that emphasizes integrity, accountability, collaboration, community responsibility, inclusivity and innovation.
