Some places will see a spike in people being evicted in the coming days, while other jurisdictions will see an increase in court filings that will lead to evictions over several months. “It’s almost unfathomable. We are on the precipice of a nationwide eviction crisis that is entirely preventable with more time to distribute rental assistance," “The eviction moratorium is the only thing standing between millions of tenants and eviction while rental assistance applications are pending.
