Understanding the End of the Eviction Moratorium

October 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Please join us for a panel presentation to review available resources, present the basics of the federal CDC-initiated moratorium and hear about proposed responses. What is the impact of the end of the state eviction and foreclosure moratorium and the implications of the federal eviction moratorium put in place by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)? What can we do to keep people safely housed? How can we support rental property and other homeowners and keep our neighborhoods stable? Hear from experts to learn how the state eviction process has changed.

Panelists include:

  • Ann Jochnick, Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, Housing Attorney
  • Laura Camara, Justice Center of Southeast Massachusetts, Senior Attorney
  • Ellen Schachter, Somerville Office of Housing Stability, formerly of Cambridge and Somerville Legal Services
  • Kathy Facchini, Housing Services Director, NeighborWorks® Housing Solutions, the administering agency for Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) and Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance (ERMA)

“Housing stability helps protect public health because homelessness increases the likelihood of individuals moving into congregate settings,” “which then puts individuals at risk for COVID-19”
— US Dept. of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Federal Register Notice, September 2020
