The Boston Housing Authority announced this morning it's suspending "non-essential" evictions though the end of the year due to Covid-19 concerns.
The announcement follows a similar announcement earlier this week by WinnCompanies, one of the state's largest landlords of low-income apartments.
The moratorium offers housing stability to BHA's public housing residents and reduces coronavirus risks associated with the processing of its nonessential eviction cases. Nonessential evictions include all eviction proceedings except for those related to criminal activity and those that are necessary to protect the health and safety of BHA residents, employees, and others.
