Eviction Estimate Tool

A new new eviction estimation tool tool developed by global advisory firm Stout, with input from the National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel (NCCRC), uses census survey results and income data to estimate how many households could be at risk of eviction as moratoriums end, courts reopen, and rent relief efforts fall short. The tool, which will be updated with census survey data each week, is aimed at policy makers. Users can look at state-by-state or national data on estimated evictions, along with the amount of rent relief needed to possibly stabilize these households—currently, the national estimated rent shortfall totals $22 billion.
