Across the nation, millions of renters — about 14 percent of all renter households — are currently behind on rent due to COVID-19. Without sufficient eviction protection, debt relief, and financial support, these Covid-impacted renters will be left behind. The National Equity Atlas in partnership with the Right to the City Alliance produced a new rent debt dashboard that equips advocates and policymakers with timely data on the extent of renter debt and the characteristics of households affected by it. This dashboard is updated every two weeks and includes near-real-time data on the number and characteristics of renters who have fallen behind as well as estimates of total rent debt for the US, 45 states, and 15 metro areas. Visit the dashboard and read our accompanying analysis and infographics. View all previous rent debt analyses.
