CBPP Releases Report on Hardship, Joblessness, and Health Impacts of COVID-19

The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) this week released a report detailing hardship facing millions of Americans amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for key additional relief measures in forthcoming Congressional legislation. The report highlights emerging data showing a large and growing number of households are struggling to afford food and are behind on rent, raising concerns about a spike in evictions as federal, state, and local moratoriums on evictions are lifted. The report details how hardship, joblessness, and health impacts of the pandemic are widespread and particularly prevalent among Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and immigrant households.

The full report is available here and an executive summary is available here.
