Sign Up Today for Winter Issue of Tenant Talk

NLIHC is gearing up to release its winter issue of Tenant Talk​​​​​​, a semi-annual newsletter created to engage residents in housing advocacy. Each edition highlights innovative approaches and recent victories in communities throughout the United States, as well as discussions of key housing issues playing out in Congress. The winter edition will feature emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs and explore how they have impacted renters navigating the economic challenges of the pandemic. Sign up today to receive a free copy!

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program was established by the “Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021” and later expanded by the “American Rescue Plan Act.” The program provided an unprecedented $46 billion for emergency rental assistance to help renters stay stably housed during the pandemic. Policymakers, program administrators, and renters have learned much about emergency rental assistance since the program’s launch. The upcoming issue of Tenant Talk will offer an overview of a number of these lessons.

In particular, the issue will feature spotlight articles from our partners across the country about their efforts to increase Faccess to ERA. As always, the issue will also include resident perspectives that dive deeper into renter experiences, in this case involving the ERA program. Readers will also find articles on tenant protections, updates on the “Build Back Better Act,” discussions of NLIHC’s current research, and more.

Tenant Talk will be made available to all NLIHC members and partners – and the general public – for reading or downloading on NLIHC’s website.
