Tenant Assistance Project

The Tenant Assistance Project supports Community Legal Aid's mission by ensuring low-income renters have safe, stable, and affordable places to live. Project staff work directly with renters to maintain their home, improve their living conditions, and assert their rights in eviction proceedings. The project’s primary focus in 2022 is protecting tenants impacted by COVID-19 from eviction through representation and community collaboration regarding rental assistance funds. Project staff also are working on structural advocacy around right-to-counsel in eviction cases and sealing of past eviction cases.
