NEW YORK, NEW YORK – AUGUST 11: Activists hold a protest against evictions near City Hall on August 11, 2021 in New York City. New York state’s current eviction moratorium is set to expire on August 31. The Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which was created in the state budget and is meant to cover a year’s worth of rent and utility bills for tenants at or below 80% of area median income, has struggled to address the thousands of caseloads of tenants facing eviction.
