A: If you've received eviction papers despite having approved rental assistance and making partial rent payments within the time frame of a 3-day notice, it's important to understand your rights and the next steps you can take. Each jurisdiction has specific laws regarding eviction processes and tenant rights, including how rental assistance interacts with eviction notices. The acceptance of partial rent payment and communication with the rental assistance agency by your landlord may also impact your situation.

You should immediately consult with legal advice or a tenant advocacy group in your area to understand the specifics of your case. Documentation, such as receipts of payment and records of communication with the rental assistance program and your landlord, will be crucial. These organizations can provide guidance based on local laws and may offer support or representation if necessary.

In the meantime, continue to communicate with your landlord and the rental assistance program to document your efforts to resolve the situation. It's also beneficial to stay informed about tenant protection laws in your area, as some jurisdictions have specific provisions for situations involving rental assistance and eviction processes. Acting swiftly to seek advice and assistance is key to navigating this challenging situation.
