After the US Supreme Court ended the original Federal CDC Eviction Moratorium on 26th August 2021, CDC issued a new moratorium which carries the ending day on 3rd October 2021. National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) and National Organization for Women (NOW) are calling for action on Wednesday, 20th October 2021 to urge all levels of government to distribute the emergency rental assistance dollars already given by the federal government but still pending in implementation process and/or slow spending due to the complicated procedures since Only 3 states hold on evictions after 20th October 2021 and 0 state holds on utility shut-offs.

Cleveland is one of the many cities answering the calling in hope that all the local efforts to help our less fortunate folks through the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic would NOT go wasted as well as the people at risk to become unhoused all over the country can receive assistance in time. We know we cannot house any more homeless people during this COVID-19 Pandemic in the hotel/motel rooms anymore since the funding for hotel/motel programmes all over the country has Already Run Out, including Cleveland/Cuyahoga County. And, the Winter is Coming! The emergency eviction dollars need to be distributed ASAP and STOP Evictions Now!

Cleveland “STOP Evictions Now!” Rally is organised by Loh (Homeless Congress), Don Bryant (Greater Cleveland Immigrant Support Network - GCISN), End Poverty Now Coalition, Utilities for All (UFA), and Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless (NEOCH). Please join us to rally together!

Date & Time: 12:30 on Wednesday, 20th October 2021
Location: North Quadrant at Public Square in Downtown Cleveland
