National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC)
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) is pleased to announce the release of our End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) Request for Proposals to develop and implement strategies that result in the creation of permanent state and local emergency rental assistance programs and tenant protections.
End Rental Arrears to Stop Evictions (ERASE) is the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s (NLIHC) national effort designed to ensure that the historic $46.6 billion in emergency rental assistance enacted by Congress reaches the lowest-income and most marginalized renters it is intended to help. The project seeks to eliminate rental indebtedness caused by the pandemic and set the stage for permanent solutions to promote housing stability, advance equity, and prevent evictions for the long term by: tracking and analyzing emergency rental assistance utilization; documenting and sharing best practices and toolkits; influencing and shaping program design at federal, state, local levels; developing key partnerships for outreach and education; and assessing remaining needs to inform advocacy for long-term investments and tenant protections to end housing instability and homelessness in the United States.
Thank you to all those who have answered the call and signed up to assemble outreach item kits for our unsheltered neighbors. These kits include cold-weather items and other essentials for individuals sleeping outside during this harsh winter weather.
