- An estimated 43,000 renter households are at the highest risk of eviction, primarily undocumented workers and others who aren’t receiving unemployment or other income replacement. That’s roughly 16 times the typical number of evictions filed in a whole year.
- If just 10%-18% of those folks are evicted and end up homeless (in line with past research), that could double or triple the County’s homeless population.
- Those facing eviction are disproportionately likely to be Black and Latinx, women-headed households, and families with young children.
- Without the $600/week supplemental unemployment benefits set to expire August 1, thousands more families will likely no longer be able to cover rent, resulting in many more evictions after the moratorium ends.
