Description:

Volunteers needed! With the scheduled end of the moratorium on evictions in Massachusetts on October 17th, it is anticipated that there will be an increased need for volunteer attorneys to represent low-income litigants, both tenants and landlords, in Housing Court. These cases can be a part of a pro bono project or cases on which to build a practice.

This training will introduce attorneys to tools and resources available to veterans facing eviction, including:

  • state and federal benefits that may help forestall an eviction
  • housing resources that may help a veteran family locate new housing if needed
  • effective communication strategies with servicemember and veteran clients

This program is part of the BBA’s broader effort to promote housing stability for low-income Massachusetts residents who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and also part of the BBA's Pro Bono Month and Housing Court training series.
