With Eviction Moratorium Deadline Approaching, What's At Stake For Tenants And Landlords?

Download Audio

The Commonwealth's eviction moratorium ends on Saturday.
Gov. Baker initially extended the ban from its original deadline of Aug. 18th, but will not do so again.

Instead, this week the governor announced a $171 million Eviction Diversion Initiative for tenants and landlords. Critics say that isn't nearly enough, and the ban should be extended to the end of the year.

We take listener calls and talk about what's at stake with State Rep. Mike Connolly, who represents the 26th Middlesex District, and Stefanie Coxe, executive director of the Regional Housing Network of Massachusetts. We also hear from Doug Quatrocchi, who is with Mass Landlords.
