Eviction Diversion Initiative: Free Legal Services

Eviction Diversion Initiative: Free Legal Services 

Through the COVID-19 Eviction Legal Help Project (CELHP), there is a substantial expansion of free legal help for low-income tenants as well as low-income owner-occupants of 2-3 family properties navigating the eviction process. These services can be used before the eviction process begins, as well as once a notice has been received, and can be used in coordination with community mediation services (https://www.resolutionma.org/).  For the legal services income eligibility is capped at 200% of federal poverty level.

 

Legal services will be available in every region and can be found on a new website built for this initiative: https://evictionlegalhelp.org/. Households can also call 2-1-1, and learn more at the Department of Housing and Community Development’s website, www.mass.gov/CovidHousingHelp.
