In California, Governor Gavin Newsom is set to announce his state will pay off all the past-due rent that accumulated during the pandemic. California will use its unexpected budget surplus and federal stimulus money to finance the $5.2 billion program. However, it is still unclear whether California will ban evictions of people with unpaid rent past June 30. Across the U.S., over 11 million people are behind on their rent and could face eviction from their homes when the federal eviction moratorium expires at the end of the month.
