Those at risk for being evicted now have some extra time to figure out what to do next.

On Tuesday, the US Supreme Court declined to end the nationwide moratorium on evictions, which was put in place because of the pandemic.

The decision comes after President Biden extended the ban until the end of July. But, he said it was the last time he would do so. The ban was originally set to expire today.

We take calls from renters and landlords about what the one-month extension means for them. We also hear from Gary Klein, the director of the COVID Eviction Legal Help Project at Greater Boston Legal Services, and Douglas Quattrochi, the executive director of the organization MassLandlords.

If you are a renter facing eviction or need help with eviction resources, you can visit this site for assistance or call the Greater Boston Legal Services housing intake line at 617-603-1807.
