Black And Latino Texans Face High Risk Of Eviction

Many Texans are at risk of eviction when the moratorium ends this week. According to a US Census Bureau survey from July, nearly 40 percent of both Black and Latino renters in Texas are unsure if they can make rent, compared with about 20 percent of white renters. Trerod Hall, an attorney with Legal Aid of Northwest Texas who represents low-income tenants facing eviction, says, “Many of the clients who are facing eviction do not know where to go, do not know who to reach out to, and sometimes have difficulty applying for these different programs, so they just give up.”
