Eviction Resolution Pilot Program

The goal of the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP) is to bring all parties together with trained resolution specialists to explore solutions such as available state and local rental assistance, or achievable payment plans that could help tenants retain their housing and divert many situations from the legal eviction process. The program was developed by the state Superior Court Judges’ Association (SCJA) in partnership with the state Office of Civil Legal Aid.  

The objective of the ERPP is to: 

  • Bring all parties to the table with the assistance of qualified and trained Eviction Resolution Specialists;
  • Explore the amount of rent arrears, the current and prospective circumstances of the tenant, the availability of rent and other assistance to cure or partially cure the arrearage;
  • Discover a range of other terms that might resolve the matter in a way that allows the tenant to retain housing (and avoid the need for filing of an unlawful detainer action).

Landlords and tenants can find details about the eviction resolution program, and how they can participate, on the statewide website dedicated to the program here: EVICTION RESOLUTION PILOT PROGRAM.

**Please note: These forms were, in part, generated by the Superior Court Judges’ Association Unlawful Detainer Work Group (UDWG).  Forms not generated by the UDWG were identified as useful for litigants in unlawful detainer cases and serve as an additional resource for judicial officers in addressing the procedural steps of the unlawful detainer process with litigants.  Not all forms may be necessary or relevant in Chelan County.
