Northampton County’s Community Mediation & Eviction Diversion Program


Community Mediation & Eviction Diversion Program


In light of Pennsylvania’s eviction moratorium expiring on August 31st, Lamont McClure reminds residents that Northampton County has approximately $3.6 million available for rental assistance, rapid rehousing and utility payments. The Department of Human Services and the Department of Community and Economic Development, worked together to develop the Community Mediation and Eviction Diversion Program (CMED). CMED offers experienced mediators, emergency financial assistance and rapid rehousing to prevent homelessness.


“Northampton County is ready to assist with conflict management, financial support and education services to resolve eviction disputes and prevent homelessness,” says Lamont McClure. “Housing services are free to low-and-moderate income households and owners of rental units housing low-and-moderate income tenants.”
