At 2pm on Friday, January 22nd we had an informative evening regarding information on fighting evictions in your community.
Longstanding racial inequities in the housing market, along with widening income disparity and the economic meltdown caused by COVID-19 have made many or our friends and neighbors wondering if they’ll be evicted.
State and Federal eviction moratoriums are set to expire soon, and when all that back rent is suddenly due, many people will be at risk of losing their homes.
Meanwhile, local, State and Federal agencies are looking at extending and improving protections for renters and compensating small landlords.
We heard from agencies on the front line of this crisis about how you can help your community avoid evictions. We found out about where to go for what kind of help, and where to find the latest information about changes in the law.
