The rent was due Tuesday, but now millions of people across the country are safe from evictions through the end of the year.

The Trump Administration has banned evictions over failed rent payments for residential tenants making less than $99,000 a year.

The policy also applies to couples earning less than $198,000 a year.

The White House says keeping people in their homes is necessary to curb the spread of coronavirus, which is why the CDC is leading this eviction ban.

One in five renters was at risk of being evicted by the end of September, according to a new study from the Aspen Institute.

The eviction ban comes as Congress has been unable to reach an agreement on the next economic stimulus plan.
