As the eviction moratorium comes to an end, homelessness may rise side by side with Delta variant cases

Thursday evening the U.S. Supreme Court sided with landlords when they disallowed the eviction moratorium backed by the White House administration.

The ruling said the CDC exceeded its authority.

Democratic lawmakers tried to urge Congress to pass legislation helping to protect individuals from eviction, but there were not enough votes.


The other issue is the incredibly slow distribution of aid set aside specifically for landlords in the sum of $46.5 billion dollars.

Out of the money only $5 billion had been disbursed at the end of last month.

In an attempt to speed up disbursements landlords were even filing eviction notices against their tenants.

Right now the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia is owed $15 billion in back rent, and the number may be even higher.

As Delta continues to surge, it looks like homelessness will as well. Many communities facing the highest rates of evictions are also the lowest in rates of vaccination.
