New York Governor Hochul on Eviction Moratorium Ruling

New York (STL.News) Governor Kathy Hochul released the following statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Eviction Moratorium

“I am very disappointed in the Supreme Court’s appalling and insensitive ruling that eliminates a key line of defense for tenants facing housing insecurity during the ongoing pandemic, and we are exploring all options to further protect New Yorkers from eviction, including with the legislative leaders.

“It is critical that New Yorkers know that anyone who applies to the rent relief program will automatically be protected from eviction while their application is pending.  More than $800 million has already been already disbursed or is now ready for landlords to accept on behalf of their tenants.  More than $1 billion remains available for relief and resources are available through community organizations to help New Yorkers apply, receive eviction protection, and pay their rent. New Yorkers should complete and submit their applications immediately.  This is urgent.”
