This Rapid Health Impact Assessment (RHIA) evaluates the potential health impacts on renters of Boston’s proposed Just Cause for Eviction Ordinance, which would require landlords to have a “just cause,” including any violation of the lease terms, before evicting tenants. A group of students in the Healthy Cities course in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology conducted the RHIA between February and June 2016.
