On the next American Black Journal: Now that a federal moratorium on evictions has ended, we’ll look at how the COVID Emergency Rental Assistance (CERA) program can provide financial help for tenants who have fallen behind on their rent payments during the pandemic. In a special report produced in collaboration with the COVID313 Community Coalition of Families and Students, we’ll meet a Detroit family seeking assistance to stay in their home and learn how the CERA program works.
