Florida LegalAid Eviction Prevention Project


The Florida Legal Aid (FLA) Eviction Prevention Project is a HUD initiative.

It provides crucial legal aid services to vulnerable residents across the state to protect them from eviction.

The Project will provide:

  • Education and outreach to tenants at imminent risk of eviction;
  • Access to improved technology to help prevent future barriers to renting;
  • Assistance to tenants to avoid or reduce the negative impacts of a potential eviction, such as referrals to other service providers like Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) administrators, as well as comprehensive legal services in other areas;
  • Collaboration with courts, judges, and other parties to create and promote eviction diversion programs; and
  • Legal representation in relation to legal filings and court proceedings, including negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, and the provision of limited representation and counsel and advice, as well as assistance filing fair housing complaints related to eviction.
