The moratorium on evictions was extended through October 1st from the Office of the Florida Governor this week.
While Gov. DeSantis’ moratorium extensions have kept tenants in their homes, they didn’t cancel anyone’s past-due rent. Tenants who fail to work out a repayment schedule with their landlords, or can’t repay the missed amounts in full, can still face eviction as soon as the moratorium ends.
Advocates pushing the federal government to expand COVID-19 relief measures to help renters financially paint a grim picture of what will happen to families if they don’t get additional help.
