In October 2021, the Access to Counsel in Evictions Task Force was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapter 746, Acts of 2021).
The Task Force is to evaluate the provision of legal services in eviction cases, including the performance of the Maryland Legal Services Corporation, and designated community organizations; and consider potential funding sources for providing such access to counsel. It also will make recommendations to improve the implementation of the Access to Counsel in Evictions Program, including necessary policy and statutory changes, which is administered by the Maryland Legal Services Corporation.
Consisting of up to fifteen members, the Task Force is appointed by the Attorney General (Code Real Property Article, sec. 8-907).
