There have been protests across Boston during the past few days calling for an extension of the moratorium.

Although it expires Saturday, the Baker administration has announced millions of dollars in additional resources for people who are having trouble paying rent.

When that expires, a CDC moratorium will also kick in immediately, but residents have to meet certain eligibility requirements.

This comes as many landlords and banks have been footing the bill, and concerns growing over people taking advantage of the moratorium.
