EvictionFreeNY protected nearly 20,000 New York State tenants from eviction during the COVID-19 pandemic under the New York State eviction moratorium.
The HP Action Tool helped about 3,000 renters start a Housing Court case online against their landlord for repairs or harassment during COVID. The tool was de-activated due to abrupt changes in Housing Court procedures.
The Advocate Dashboard helped tenants and their advocates (e.g., organizers or lawyers) document repair issues and organize information in preparation for a repairs case against their landlords. In 2020, JustFix replaced the Advocate Dashboard with more action-oriented tools for tenants.
Eviction Free NYC helped tenants navigate Right to Counsel legislation by determining whether or not they qualified for a free attorney in an eviction proceeding. This tool connected tenants to their nearest legal service providers and housing rights organizations.
Tenant Text offered information, via text message, in English and Spanish about a wide variety of tenant rights issues. In order to make updates and improvements, JustFix has suspended Tenant Text.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, JustFix launched NoRent to help tenants nationally who were unable to pay rent due to COVID-19. Eventually, the tool narrowed in on working locally in Los Angeles County with our partner SAJE. Sending a NoRent letter was an important tool in protecting tenants from eviction.
