NLIHC is pleased to announce the 27 state and local organizations selected for the NLIHC Ending Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) grantee cohort. The cohort will work to influence state and local emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs and ensure that ERA funds quickly reach the lowest-income and most marginalized people. The ERASE program seeks to ensure housing stability for the lowest-income renters in the short-term while building the framework for long-term sustainability.
Building off NLIHC’s ERASE call to action, grantees will work to:
- Influence state and local programs to accelerate the equitable use of funding
- Enable the adoption of eviction-prevention and diversion measures through policy reforms and/or judicial partnerships
- Encourage transparency through tracking program data, successes, and challenges.
NLIHC looks forward to working with the selected state and local partners to support the ERASE call to action to increase ERA program visibility, increase access, and ensure eviction-prevention and diversion efforts mitigate the negative impacts of COVID 19 on housing stability.
