Baker Announces New Housing Aid - But No Eviction Moratorium

Governor Charlie Baker has announced 171-million-dollars in new aid for Massachusetts renters and landlords. 

Baker says 100-million-dollars will go into the main Massachusetts rental relief program. 

Close to 50-million-dollars will go towards preventing homelessness and for housing counseling. 

Baker says the money will promote household stability, but he's not calling for extending the eviction moratorium expiring this week.
