Evictions in Maine: An Analysis of Eviction Filings and Outcomes as the COVID-19 Pandemic Threatens to Increase Rental Housing Instability

To determine the extent of the eviction crisis in Maine and inform policymakers of its implications, the Maine Affordable Housing Coalition (MAHC) has launched an eviction tracking database (ETD). Currently, the ETD includes data on eviction actions in 13 district courts1 covering six of Maine’s 16 counties: Androscoggin, Cumberland, Kennebec, Penobscot, Sagadahoc and York. 73% of Maine’s renter households live in these six counties, and 79% of all eviction complaints in Maine between 2015-2019 were filed there. The information presented in this report was gathered through comprehensive analysis of eviction
actions filed at the district courts within the six counties referenced above, between January 1 and June 30, 2020. #covid-19
