Millions Face Eviction as June Moratorium End Nears

With a federal eviction moratorium set to end next month, millions of people behind in their rent amid the coronavirus pandemic find themselves short on options as the deadline looms.

Up to 40 million Americans are at risk of losing their homes when the moratorium is lifted on June 30, CBS News reported, citing the Aspen Institute.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first issued the moratorium in September and has since extended it three times.

But even as readily available coronavirus vaccines help drastically reduce the country’s rate of cases and deaths, the economic fallout from the pandemic is still being felt.

One in seven tenants is behind on rent, according to the Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey.

In addition, Black renters are twice as likely as White renters to face evictions, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

  1. As people got their stimulus checks, efforts should have been made to pay on the back rent. But that wasn’t done. Unemployment benefits were increased, but renters continued to let the arrears increase. There was an increase in food stamps. With all these extra benefits, a lot of people were better off financially that normally, but chose not to pay their rent. No sympathy here.
