CHICO, Calif.- The eviction ban in California could end this month and this is leaving many people who are struggling right now wondering what comes next.
This is because the moratorium on evictions in California might come to an end in four weeks.
Governor Gavin Newsom banned evictions when he first put the stay at home order into effect in March.
Since then he's extended the order but it's scheduled to expire at the end of August.
Action News Now spoke wih one man who's been struggling to make ends meet and he says he was notified he may be evicted.
"I'm having to find a place and possibly be homeless, it's a little stressful . right now im struggling to find a place and theres nothing, and i dont wish to be out on the streets and the fact that that's where I may have to go, that is scary," said Michael Morgan, from Chico.
The order does not eliminate rent, it still has to be paid back.
Action News Now reached out to our local and state leaders to see what plans they have to protect people like Morgan.
So far none have responded. Action News Now will update that information once it becomes available.
Recently, Governor Newsom extended local governments' ability to ban eviction until September 30th, but many Californians are hoping the state legislature approves multiple bills to extend the ban and protect tenants who have lost their income.
