UPDATE: initial data released for Boulder RTC


In late 2021, the City of Boulder released a report providing some results from the Eviction Prevention and Rental Assistance Services program (EPRAS).  According to the report, 63% of EPRAS cases avoided eviction, which was a 26% increase.  In essence, all tenants who appeared in court and were provided an attorney avoided eviction; only the no-show tenants were given an eviction order.  You can also read more about the program.  




On November 3, 2020, Boulder voters approved a ballot initiative establishing a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction, regardless of income.  KUNC and Next City have more, and there's additional information on the No Eviction Without Representation (NEWR) webpage as well as on the ACLU website.
