NLIHC released on January 13 a new report, “Best Practices for State and Local Emergency Rental Assistance Programs.” The report outlines key considerations and best practices for implementing emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs using the $25 billion for ERA included in the recently enacted COVID-19 relief package.
The report provides examples from state and local programs around the country, informed by NLIHC’s ongoing research on ERA programs, as well as insights and experiences of state and local advocates. Above all, NLIHC recommends program administrators create simple, accessible application processes to deliver rental assistance efficiently and effectively to tenants most in need. The report will be updated as new information becomes available and other questions arise.
