Housing

The CUSP team is grateful to collaborate with the research team led by Emily A Benfer, JD LLM to report state-level housing policy data. The housing policy data project was funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Civil Legal System Modernization initiative. The funders had no role other than funding. We take full responsibility for any inaccuracies in these data and encourage you to contact us if you have questions or suggestions for improving the database. To access the full COVID-19 Eviction Moratoria & Housing Policy dataset, please contact benfere@wfu.edu.
