Letter To The Massachusetts Governor, Senate, and House To Support H.4615, A Moratorium On Evictions And Foreclosures Bill

On April 5th, Children’s HealthWatch and other advocacy organizations sent a letter to the Governor, Senate, and House to strongly support passing a clear moratorium on evictions and foreclosures and support renters and homeowners across the Commonwealth during this global COVID-19 pandemic.

We, and our broad network of organizations, stand ready to work together to consider next-phase
issues with the time and consideration they deserve, including how to provide mortgage and rent
relief, how federal legislation will affect Massachusetts, and other questions that will arise as we
anticipate the end of the emergency. However, in order to protect lives today we urge the
Governor and the Legislature to act decisively to pass an eviction and foreclosure moratorium
that will keep our citizens and community safe.
