Emergency Housing Protection Act materials for tenants and landlords

In response to COVID-19, the City enacted the Emergency Housing Protections Act (EHPA) on July 2, 2020. The EHPA offers protections for tenants who are struggling to pay rent during this time. Tenants and landlords can use the following documents to:

  • Set up rent repayment agreements.
  • Request fee and interest waivers.
  • Arrange for mediation to avoid eviction.

You can learn more about COVID-19 emergency tenant protections on the Fair Housing Commission’s website.
