Join NLIHC, the University of Pennsylvania’s Housing Initiative at Penn, and the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy at New York University for a webinar on Thursday, January 28 at 2 pm ET on the lessons learned and best practices in designing and implementing emergency rental assistance programs. In the past year, numerous state and local governments created or expanded emergency rental assistance (ERA) programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. The University of Pennsylvania’s Housing Initiative at Penn, the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy at New York University, and NLIHC will release a new report this week based on their survey of over 200 ERA program administrators. The new report will share preliminary findings on how choices in program design and implementation have impacted important outcomes.
The webinar will review early findings and lessons learned from the new report and other relevant research and provide concrete recommendations on how programs can move forward to use efficiently and effectively the $25 billion of emergency rental assistance from the recent COVID-19 relief package.
