A federal freeze on most evictions enacted last year is scheduled to expire Saturday. However, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan extended the state’s limits on evictions through Aug. 15. State lawmakers are underscoring that hundreds of millions of dollars are available to help tenants who have fallen behind on their rent. The chief judge of Maryland’s district court told lawmakers at a hearing this week that he does not expect a “tsunami” of evictions to happen when limits on evictions expire. That’s partly because Maryland courts are operating at about 75% of their typical caseload because of the coronavirus pandemic.
