The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked part of a New York state eviction moratorium, a ruling that housing advocates say could lead to thousands losing their homes. The moratorium, which was set to expire at the end of the month, barred landlords from evicting tenants who filled out a form claiming economic hardship, instead of going through a court hearing. This comes as new data from the National Low Income Housing Coalition shows that nearly half of U.S. workers cannot afford to rent a one-bedroom apartment.
