With the the eviction moratorium in Maine set to expire 7/31/21, MaineHouseing is stepping in to expand it's current program of rental assistance.

It's a slightly different approach for MaineHousing according to a report by WABI, previously you would only qualify for the program if the pandemic was the actual cause for the financial problems that prevented a person from being able to meet personal financial housing payments. Now it will be expanded to include those who simply have had money issues during the pandemic.

The total number of months a person can receive assistance has expanded as well from 15 to 18 months.

Another concern for MaineHousing is Elderly tenants who may be presented with being evicted from their homes or apartments due to the federal eviction moratorium. MaineHousing has contracted with Pin Tree Legal Services to help elderly tenants that need legal assistance to prevent evection.
