Renters are still protected from eviction in these states and cities

The national eviction ban has lapsed, but New York, New Jersey and New Mexico have their own moratoriums.

As the struggles for renters continue, at least eight states and more than 20 cities have policies in place to keep families protected from eviction.

Even as the country pulls out of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 15% of adult renters still report being behind, with as many as 28% of African American-led households saying the same. One analysis found that the average renter in arrears owes $3,700. In some areas, though, rental debts top $10,000 per household.

Advocates say these debts won’t disappear until more federal rental assistance reaches households, yet the $45 billion in aid allocated by Congress has been disbursed at a bafflingly slow rate. Less than $13 billion has been spent so far.

The national moratorium on evictions, which had been in place since September 2020, was lifted in August after the Supreme Court rejected the policy as overreaching.

Yet with a number of states and cities setting their own limits on the proceedings, eviction protections remain available to around half of renter households, experts say.

Most renters in New Jersey and New York can’t be evicted until January. New Mexico has also prohibited renters from being pushed out of their homes, and hasn’t yet specified when the protection will end.
