image_pdfimage_print

Housing, legal and community advocates will convene at a virtual Town Hall at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 25 to discuss avenues available to residents who are at risk of being evicted due to job loss or loss of income.

The town hall is being hosted by the Department of Housing and Community Development in partnership with NeighborWorks Housing Solutions to inform Portuguese-speaking residents who are at risk of eviction or in the process of being evicted about emergency funds, free legal representation and mediation.

New Bedford and Fall River are among the hardest-hit regions in the state, where evictions have spiked due to ongoing financial instability as a result of COVID.

The town hall will be streamed at 1 p.m. on Facebook Live. There will be an opportunity for questions. Register here: us02web.zoom.us
