Eviction Threat Looms with Special Session on the Horizon

Homelessness
Social service providers, such as Catholic Charities, are fielding more calls about people concerned that they cannot pay their rent and utility bills because of the impact of COVID-19. Tenants facing eviction proceedings could see their day in court if eviction moratoriums are lifted in the coming weeks, as some are expected to do. Missouri has received CARES Act funding to help people stay in their homes, but the money hasn't yet been distributed. The Missouri legislature is expected to return to Jefferson City next week to debate supplemental budget items like this, so there is some hope that this issue can begin to be addressed. Large numbers of evictions could impact the economy negatively, as people face homelessness and debts aren't paid. For more on this issue, click here.
