Abstract:Governments and public health authorities face a seemingly intractable paradox during the COVID-19 pandemic. Key tools used to manage public health dimensions of the crisis, stay-at-home orders and business shutdowns, have initiated a secondary crisis characterized by widespread evictions and housing instability. Housing instability threatens to undermine the public health response to the pandemic by increasing the number of households facing acute housing distress and various forms of homelessness, ultimately increasing the risk of transmission and exposure to COVID-19.1 The pandemic exacerbates longstanding housing issues—homelessness, affordable housing shortages, and more broadly, the relationship between income insecurity and housing instability.2
