With some evictions allowed to start now, it’s important to understand who can and who cannot be evicted at this time. LSLA will be hosting a chat with its community partner, United Way of Matagorda County, tomorrow afternoon on Facebook Live. Learn how the CARES Act provides protections to Texas tenants, stopping many landlords from going forward with evictions until August. Tune-in to our Facebook account ⭐️@LoneStarLegalAid at 3 PM – Friday, May 22, 2020.
