Evictions: Only 7% of Emergency Rental Aid Distributed as Ban Expires

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Evictions: Only 7% of Emergency Rental Aid Distributed as Ban Expires” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden and top White House officials sought Monday to stave off a wave of evictions after the expiration of a federal moratorium, pressing federal, state and local government agencies to act quickly to stop tenants from losing their homes.

The push comes amid intensifying criticism from liberals within his own party, who have complained the White House waited too long to ask Congress to pass legislation extending the moratorium. And it underscores the challenge the administration has faced in distributing billions of dollars in pandemic assistance through bureaucracies around the country.

Biden’s request Sunday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to consider another extension of an evictions moratorium – as requested by some Democrats on Capitol Hill – was resisted by the agency’s leaders, who said they were unable to legally justify even a narrow ban following a Supreme Court ruling last month.
