The State of California has a moratorium put in place until the end of September. It seems as though they will not be voting to extend it. They say there is no “political appetite” to extend this matter. Like New York there is a great amount of protection put in place to protect renters. The emergency rental assistance program is one of those protections. California's decision will serve as a test, if there is a great amount of eviction filings it might push lawmakers to extend the moratorium and if there isn't it will give New York less credibility to extend it again. This might actually push tenants to apply for the rental assistance program. According to Russ Heimerich, spokesperson for the state's Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency, tenants will have a 15 day grace period to apply for the program during an eviction proceeding. This just adds on to the statement that tenants have a great amount of protection before they can get evicted.
