SAHA Extends Eviction Moratorium Deadline to Protect 10,000 Families

Date Published: 
November 2nd, 2021

From the San Antonio Housing Authority's press release:

The San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) is taking unprecedented action to extend the eviction moratorium for more than 10,000 residents in its public or mixed-income housing communities through March 1, 2022.

The March 2022 extension is a continuation of the agency’s extension in August 2021, following the expiration of the federal eviction moratorium over the summer when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had exceeded its statutory authority by issuing a nationwide moratorium.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted economically-disadvantaged families, and at the center are SAHA residents, who have a median household income of approximately $10,000,” said Ed Hinojosa Jr., SAHA President and CEO. “Within our communities, families have experienced unemployment, illness and financial loss. Losing their home, the only security they have, would be an unimaginable devastation to their livelihood.”

SAHA is taking extraneous efforts in protecting SAHA residents from eviction and has called on the City of San Antonio and Bexar County to designate funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to help clear approximately $3 million in debt currently owed by more than 2,700 SAHA residents.
