The Federal Eviction Moratorium
The CDC Federal Eviction Moratorium ended on Thursday, August 26, 2021. However, the end of the moratorium does not mean you will be immediately evicted if you are behind on rent. Only a court can order someone to leave their home.
In Massachusetts, if you have a pending application for emergency rental assistance, your eviction case can be paused. If you or someone you know is having trouble paying rent, financial assistance is available. Apply for rental assistance today.
For legal help, visit the COVID Eviction Legal Help Project.
For information on community mediation, visit www.resolutionma.org.
You can also call 2-1-1 for referrals available in multiple languages.
