  • The Supreme Court blocked the Biden administration’s eviction moratorium, which was extended at the beginning of August to provide continued relief during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC has repeatedly renewed the moratorium as state and local governments struggle to disburse some $47 billion of rental assistance provided by Congress.

The White House said because of the ruling, families will face more evictions and more dangers from the pandemic. (Articles here, here, here, here, here, and here)
