The state's pause on evictions expired on October 17, 2020. When the state moratorium expired, a federal moratorium established by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) became effective in Massachusetts. Through March 31, 2021, the CDC moratorium will prevent residential evictions for non-payment for qualified tenants who submit a written declaration to their landlord.

Protection is limited to households who meet certain income and vulnerability criteria. ( Read more here
