Just Cause for Eviction


Boston , Massachusetts


Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council

This rapid health impact assessment 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 assessment between February and June 2016.
