MRA Collaborating with City to Create Rental and Small Business Assistance Programs

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Help for Tenants

The Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA), in collaboration with the City of Malden, is creating a rental assistance program to assist low-income Malden renters who are unable to pay rent due to the COVID-19 crisis. While the state’s recent eviction moratorium will buy some time to struggling renters, there are far too many Malden households that will continue to struggle to pay rent throughout this crisis. We are working hard to launch this program in the next few weeks. To sign up to be notified when the program is launched and applications become available, click here.

Help for Small Businesses

The MRA, in collaboration with the City of Malden, is also creating a small business assistance program to assist Malden businesses that are struggling due to the COVID-19 crisis. The first round of assistance will be limited to small businesses with a low- or moderate-income business owner and five or fewer full-time employees, among other criteria. Future rounds of business assistance may have other criteria. We are working hard to launch this program in the next few weeks.
