The moratorium extension won’t end evictions

Progressives like Rep. Cori Bush successfully pushed President Joe Biden for a 60-day extension to the eviction moratorium, which covers approximately 7 million people. But this protection only extends to areas with high COVID-19 transmission. The vast majority of rent relief aid is yet to be distributed, and housing advocates warn that unless further protections are enacted, the hard-fought extension will only delay the inevitable.
