MA to provide counsel to tenants statewide

10/12/2020, Legislation, Housing - Evictions

The Governor of Massachusetts announced a new program to provide $100 million in rental assistance, $48.7 million for rapid rehousing of evicted tenants, and $8-9 million for tenant representation.  The representation program will provide counsel to all tenants statewide for as long as the funding lasts.



The NCCRC has worked with the Massachusetts RTC Coalition on advancing this issue.
