San Antonio seeks $3 million federal eviction prevention grant

The City of San Antonio will submit a grant application this month to the federal government, seeking money to bolster its eviction prevention programs.

City Council unanimously voted to apply for $3 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Eviction Protection Grant Program on Thursday, just one week after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked a national eviction moratorium.

The eviction moratorium is dead, but housing assistance, the Right to Counsel program, and other eviction prevention programs will continue with local, state, and federal funding.
