United Way, Civil Justice to bring legal services to Baltimore-area tenants facing eviction

October 12, 2022
United Way of Central Maryland has partnered with Civil Justice Inc. to bring access to legal representation to Baltimore area residents over the course of the next four years. The group was awarded a $4 million grant by the Maryland Legal Services Corporation to create a first-of-its-kind initiative in Maryland that will address the need among residents facing eviction for legal representation. A study funded by the Abell Foundation for the Public Justice Center found that while 96% of landlords have legal representation during eviction proceedings, just 1% of tenants have legal representation. Of tenants without representation, 93% are displaced, while only 8% of tenants with representation are displaced.
