As our pandemic-induced recession marches on, a lot of people who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own now face the scary prospect of losing their homes. A moratorium on evictions is slated to end soon. In anticipation of this, the Connecticut Department of Housing has announced two relief programs for renters and homeowners.

Connecticut Public Radio’s All Things Considered host, John Henry Smith, spoke with Democratic state Rep. Brandon McGee of Hartford, the co-chairman of the Housing Committee.
