The CARES Act requires landlords to provide a 30-day notice to tenants prior to eviction. This Act covers properties supported by HUD, USDA, and Treasury (Low Income Housing Tax Credit), and properties with federally-backed mortgages (e.g., FHA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac).

This searchable database allow some renters to identify if their home is covered by the CARES Act. It contains data on millions of apartments in multifamily housing insured by the Federal Housing Administration or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, and millions more supported by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, HUD, and USDA programs. You can search the table by ZIP code or city. The database is not comprehensive; it does not include data on single-family rental homes of one to four units that are also covered under the CARES Act, and it may not include all Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac multifamily mortgages. When NLIHC obtains additional data, we will add it to the database.


La Ley CARES requiere que los propietarios proporcionen un aviso de 30 días a los inquilinos antes del desalojo. Esta Ley cubre propiedades respaldadas por HUD, USDA y El Tesoro (Crédito Tributario para Viviendas de Bajos Ingresos), y propiedades con hipotecas respaldadas por el gobierno federal (por ejemplo, FHA, Fannie Mae y Freddie Mac).

Esta base de datos de búsqueda permite a algunos inquilinos identificar si su apartamento está cubierta por la Ley CARES. Contiene datos sobre millones de apartamentos en viviendas multifamiliares aseguradas por la Administración Federal de Vivienda o titulizadas por Fannie Mae o Freddie Mac, y millones más respaldados por los programas de Crédito Tributario para Viviendas de Bajos Ingresos, HUD y USDA. Puede buscar en la tabla por código postal o ciudad. La base de datos no es exhaustiva; no incluye datos sobre viviendas unifamiliares de alquiler de una a cuatro unidades que también están cubiertas por la Ley CARES, y es posible que no incluya todas las hipotecas multifamiliares de Fannie Mae y Freddie Mac. Cuando NLIHC obtenga datos adicionales, los agregaremos a la base de datos.

  • Database

You can also check a property's status in relation to mortgages supported by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) using their multifamily lookup tools. The Fannie Mae tool can be found here, the Freddie Mac tool can be found here, and the FHA tool can be found here. The FHA tool includes properties with FHA multifamily mortgages or in HUD’s Multifamily programs, but not properties that are part of HUD’s Public and Indian Housing programs. There are currently no lookup tools that include rental properties of one to four units backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
