If you’re a renter struggling to pay rent a new online tool by Fannie Mae might be able to help.

It’s called the Renters Resource Finder and it helps identifies apartments and other multifamily properties financed by Fannie Mae whose residents are eligible for eviction protection under the federal CARES Act.

Residents of rental properties--with five or more units with a Fannie Mae-backed mortgage are covered by a temporary eviction moratorium. The tool also connects these renters to free help including:

Hud-approved housing counselors who can offer financial coaching and budgeting and guidance on unemployment benefits, nutritional assistance and other programs.
