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.
