Funding and Website for Rental Assistance
Pima County and the City of Tucson have rolled out a website to provide funding and information to Landlords and Tenants due to the COVID Pandemic. Link below:
The City/County have received $51 million for rental assistance. The website has to date only had a “soft” opening, but there is already a wait list. We encourage all eligible tenants and landlords to review the information provided on this site.
The Texas Courts issued a ruling on one of the more prominent cases challenging the CDC Eviction Moratorium on February 25, 2021. https://www.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.txed.201598/gov.uscourts.txed.201598.45.0.pdf This ruling was in favor of the landlords and declared the Moratorium unconstitutional on a federal level. No action has as of yet been taken by the Arizona Supreme Court to implement this ruing into our current practices and procedures here in Arizona and Pima County. The Department of Justice did file an appeal on this ruling. We will keep you posted on the case.
