The Polk County Continuum of Care is partnering with community organizations to support residents with information about eviction, renters’ rights and community resources in preparation for the May 27 expiration of Iowa’s eviction moratorium, the CoC announced this week.

The mass loss of jobs and income has exacerbated financial and housing inequities, said Angie Arthur, executive director of the CoC.
