NLIHC released a request for proposals (RFP) for a consultant, evaluation firm and/or academic institution to conduct a multi-site evaluation that will assess the impact and effectiveness of COVID-response emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs in selected sites. Results from the study will be used to assess the impact of ERA on tenants, inform program development and on-going implementation, and guide policy recommendations related to the need and provision of emergency rental assistance beyond the pandemic.

- Understand the characteristics and the need of households requiring emergency rental assistance
