Eviction Protection

The US federal eviction moratorium has been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court
Remember: Your landlord cannot evict you; Only a judge can.

Worried about eviction? You still have options

Congress has allocated more than $45 billion in rental assistance to address the crisis, and only a sliver of the money has been spent so far. If you’re approved for the relief, you could get up to 18 months of rent covered.

Just applying can help you stay in your home longer.

Massachusetts Temporary Eviction Ban

Massachusetts is banning evictions against those with a pending rental assistance application.

If your landlord is refusing to cooperate, about a quarter of the programs now allow the assistance to go directly to the tenant.
