LISTEN: Connecticut Non-Profit Offers Help When Eviction Moratorium Ends

July 31 is the last day for the federal eviction moratorium designed to keep people struggling financially in their homes during the pandemic. That means—of course—the flood gates could open wide on Aug. 1 for a wave of evictions both here in Connecticut and nationally. 

Someone who’s been paying close attention to this is Bruce Marks. He’s the CEO and Founder the Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America—or NACA. Bruce joined All Things Considered to talk how his non-profit organization--and others like it--can help both renters and mortgage holders alike who might find themselves in trouble when this eviction moratorium ends.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. He's proud to be a part of the team that won a regional Emmy Award for The Vote: A Connecticut Conversation. In his 21st year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
