A California pandemic aid bill signed into law late Monday extends eviction protections for another three months and authorizes the state to pay 100% of the back rent owed by low-income tenants who apply for the relief. UNLESS IT DOESN'T..

The relief comes none too soon for California renters on the verge of homelessness. The current eviction grace period expires June 30. California is expected to receive at least $5.2 billion in federal funds to fully cover past-due and prospective rent payments for income-qualified tenants. But renter advocacy groups worry the state won't distribute the relief money in time to help those who need it most from getting kicked out of their homes after Sept. 30, when the newly extended moratorium ends. The state’s “Housing is Key” program has been roundly criticized by landlords and tenants alike for its onerous application process, slow turnaround in payments and poor follow-up with applicants. UPDATE: THIS LIKELY EXPIRES JULY 30 NOW due to SUPREME COURT RULING.
