A new emergency order from the Texas Supreme Court announced on Monday extended the state’s peasant eviction program launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The detour program was set to expire on July 27th. New orders will extend it until October 1st.

In September, Governor Greg Abbott announced the creation of a Texas peasant eviction program, which states 100 million in federal CARES law funding for Texas rental assistance and legal services facing peasant eviction. He said he would spend $ 71 million. The program initially included 19 counties, but expanded throughout the state in February.

The voluntary program created an alternative eviction if both the tenant and the landlord agreed to participate, and provided the tenant with up to 15 months of rental and utility bill assistance. If the resident and his landlord agree in court to seek state support, the eviction procedure can be postponed for up to 60 days.
