OKLAHOMA CITY -

The eviction moratorium is set to expire on March 31 with the issue of leaving thousands of Oklahomans without a roof over their heads.

"It has been a double-pronged problem because people that owe rent are to people that owe one or two rental homes using it as retirement money. They haven't been paid rent either," Oklahoma Association of Realtors president Axay Parekh said.

The problem has renters building debt while landlords are waiting to pay their own bills as the eviction date looms.

Approximately $210 million from the CARES Act is going to Oklahomans who need help paying their rent.

The new COVID-19 relief bill will provide more than $30 billion to low-income households to help pay with rent and assist those that experience homelessness.

The state is expecting to receive additional funding to help with bills.

There is a possibility of the moratorium being extended, but no decision has been finalized as of yet.
