City of Boulder Resource Roundup

With the Supreme Court’s recent reversal of the federal eviction moratorium, the city would like to share the many local resources available to help those experiencing financial hardship. At the city, we believe all Boulder community members deserve to thrive. The pandemic has brought unforeseen challenges to many people in our community. It is important to remember that assistance is available in many areas, including eviction prevention, rental assistance, food, childcare, healthcare and mental health.

Eviction Prevention

The City of Boulder’s Community Mediation and Resolution Center provides tools including legal services, mediation, and rental assistance, which are some of the most effective ways to help prevent evictions. Community members facing potential eviction from their home are encouraged to contact the city’s Eviction Prevention and Rental Assistance Services program as soon as possible.

Boulder County Housing Helpline

The city works closely with Boulder County to connect community members to resources, including the county’s Housing Helpline. The Housing Helpline provides Boulder County community members impacted by COVID-19 with supports for renters and landlords.
