Join Tenant Talk Live – a webinar with and for residents and resident leaders – today, July 12, at 6 pm ET (5 pm CT, 4 pm MT, and 3 pm PT) to discuss organizing strategies, hear from advocates, and share resources to prepare renters for the end of the federal eviction moratorium.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, NLIHC and our partners have fought for a robust eviction moratorium paired with substantial emergency rental assistance to ensure that millions of renters remain stably housed. The Biden administration extended the eviction moratorium issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through July 31 but indicated this will be the last time the moratorium will be extended.
By extending the moratorium, the administration will keep many families safely housed, which will contain the spread of COVID-19. During the next few weeks, qualified renters facing evictions are encouraged to provide a signed declaration to their landlords. The extension also gives state and local jurisdictions more time to bolster their emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs and distribute assistance to families and individuals in need.
During today’s Tenant Talk Live webinar, we will provide resources on rental assistance, clarify tenant rights, and discuss anti-eviction efforts. The webinar will also be an opportunity for renters to share what is happening in their communities across the country. NLIHC Housing Advocacy Organizers Olivia Arena and Sidney Betancourt will facilitate this webinar. We will also be joined by leaders working on rental assistance and tenant rights, including Chicago Anti-Eviction Campaign's J.R. Fleming, the National Housing Law Project’s Bridgett Simmons and Eric Dunn, and Sarah Gallagher from NLIHC.
NLIHC is committed to connecting and engaging with resident leaders in new, robust ways. If you are a low-income resident and have a topic you would like to propose, or if you want to be a speaker on an upcoming call/webinar, please email: [email protected]
