According to a survey by the US Census Bureau, roughly 5.8 million adults say they are somewhat to very likely to face eviction or foreclosure in the next two months.
A CARES Act program allowing homeowners to pause mortgage payments for up to a year is set to expire. Some homeowners in the program could face foreclosure as early as March. Meanwhile, the CDC’s nationwide suspension on evictions will expire on Dec. 31. Millions of Americans are also set to lose unemployment benefits at year-end unless Congress passes an extension.
