Statewide Landlord Advocacy Project Coming to an End

We regret to announce the end of the statewide Landlord Advocacy Project effective June 30, 2024, due to a lack of funding. We want to express our gratitude to all our community leaders, clients, and volunteers who have supported us in building this program from the ground up. Despite this setback, we are proud to continue our mission of assisting low-income landlords in the Boston area through the Volunteer Lawyers Project. As a landlord, you can still seek legal advice by walking into our Eastern Housing Court Clinic in Boston. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve this population and help them find justice in the face of adversity.

In October 2020, the Volunteer Lawyers Project joined the statewide Eviction Diversion Initiative’s COVID Eviction Legal Help Project (CELHP for short). Now, under a new Eviction Legal Aid grant, this project aims to continue helping low-income small landlords facing a housing crisis by providing high-quality assistance. Read more.
