MRA Plays Key Role in City’s Housing Stabilization Program During COVID-19

Monday, February 22, 2021

The City and the Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) have been working tirelessly to stabilize Malden residents affected by coronavirus. The efforts have included a $500,000 eviction prevention program to provide every Malden resident facing eviction with court-based mediation, legal aid, and rental assistance; a $500,000 rental assistance program in December 2020 that served more than 100 families with eliminating rent debt; a City Executive order placing a moratorium on evictions in the City and the development of an eviction prevention information hub on the City of Malden website.
