New York State lawmakers agreed to extend sweeping protections against evictions into next year. The new agreement, which extends the moratorium through Jan.15 and was passed by the State Legislature late Wednesday, now creates one of the most extensive protections in the nation. Only five other states and Washington, D.C., currently have eviction moratoriums in place, according to the White House, and many of those protections expire at some point this year.

The moratorium extension will apply to residential and commercial evictions, as well as foreclosures.
