As more federal housing relief resources come to Massachusetts, this forum will provide updates on existing relief efforts through the Eviction Diversion Initiative as well as new programs—the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) and Subsidized Housing Emergency Rental Assistance (SHERA) program. The forum will share perspectives from different regions of the state, including Boston, Springfield, and the South Shore. 

Learn about how Massachusetts has tripled the amount of emergency housing assistance since January as well as plans to further improve how these resources can help residents and property owners.
