About Us

The Mass. Alliance Against Predatory Lending (MAAPL) consists of a coalition of nearly 70 member organizations, as well as a number of endorsing organizations. Among the member organizations are housing counseling agencies, legal services groups, social service agencies, and community-based social action groups. All have come together to work on reversing the foreclosure crisis in Massachusetts. We focus our work on:

  • Legislative initiatives, including judicial foreclosure, mandatory mediation, just cause eviction post-foreclosure, and other pre- and post-foreclosure protections for tenants and homeowners;
  • Organizing to prevent eviction of tenants and resident homeowners who are paying their rents in foreclosed properties;
  • Providing education to homeowners and tenants regarding their rights, as well as educating the general public regarding the predatory and discriminatory practices of lenders and financial institutions;
  • Ensuring that foreclosed properties can be acquired as affordable housing by non-profits and other entities.

MAAPL shares information among, and coordinates the activities of, its member organizations and, where possible, speaks with a united voice on behalf of people impacted by the foreclosure crisis and against predatory lending practices.

You can reach us by phone or fax at 508-630-1686 or visit our Contact page.
