NLIHC is pleased to announce the End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) Webinar Series. This three-part series (July 28, August 4, and August 11 from 3-4:30 pm ET) will provide emergency rental assistance (ERA) program administrators, state and local partners, and community stakeholders with tools and best practices to ensure that ERA reaches households experiencing the worst impacts of the pandemic—including households of color, people with disabilities, and immigrant communities—in time to prevent housing loss and eviction. Register for the webinar series here.
With the federal CDC eviction moratorium expiring on July 31, NLIHC calls on state and local partners to ensure that: 1) tenants and landlords in need know about and can access ERA; 2) ERA applications are flexible, streamlined, and low barrier; and 3) ERA programs are connected to other tenant protections and ultimately successful in preventing evictions.
Each webinar will address one core focus area of the ERASE Call to Action: that ERA programs are visible, accessible, and preventive.
