National Moratorium on Evictions Set to Expire on December 31

That moratorium is set to expire on December 31 if lawmakers in Congress do not extend it. The National Low Income Housing Coalition estimates as many as 19 million people in 6.7 million households are at risk of being evicted if they don’t.
