EBCLC’s Housing Program focuses on defending eviction lawsuits brought against low income tenants. The program emphasizes defense of long term tenancies to preserve the value of rent controlled units. EBCLC also prioritizes subsidized tenancies such as those in the section 8 and conventional public housing programs, as well as on behalf of tenants with disabilities. Last, housing attorneys bring affirmative lawsuits to enforce state laws relating habitability standards, discrimination, and retaliation, as well as enforcement of local rent and eviction control ordinances.
