National eviction ban to end as Covid-19 cases rise during the Delta Variant

 

The House failed to extend the national moratorium on evictions Friday Democratic leaders trying to get the White House for  not taking action that could result in millions of people across the country losing their homes.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters after Democrats tried to extend the moratorium, where  Republicans objected, “Really, we only learned about this yesterday,.” “I have no criticism of the administration for what they are doing for what they see as the law.” Pelosi said. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer called it “unfortunate,” while House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn described it as “inconvenient.”, as reported by Politico

After a failed  last-minute Congressional meeting  Friday to extend the federal eviction moratorium, the measure has  expired Saturday, July 31st, that ends protections to prevent  millions of Americans avoid eviction during an unprecedented medical emergency.

More than six million American households  have been behind on rent at the end of March, the  Department of Housing and Urban Development reports . That means  3.6 million people will be  facing eviction in the next two months, reports  the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey.

Emergency Rental Assistance program is available for those behind on rent , but the process is slow to qualify for those funds and time is of the essence.

The White House released a statement urging state and local governments to allow more funds from the  available emergency rental assistance. “Every state and local government must get these funds out to ensure we prevent every eviction we can,” Biden said in a statement Friday.

Millions of families could be at risk of homelessness during the coronavirus pandemic.

Democrats ended up being short by  a minimum of  a dozen votes as of Friday afternoon
