Understanding Eviction and How Libraries Can Help
Learn how you and your library can better connect people to eviction-related information and services.
Housing insecurity and high rates of eviction were already a crisis in certain regions prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Soaring unemployment levels and confusing moratoria have also aggravated the situation. Under normal circumstances, the eviction process is so complex that it can be difficult for landlords and tenants alike to understand and navigate. Over the last two years, additional layers of complexity were added as national, state, county, and municipal government implemented, rescinded, or modified an assortment of policies related to eviction (National Low Income Housing Coalition). Join this webinar to understand the current state of the eviction crisis, recognize the basic stages of the process, and discuss options for forestalling evictions through rental assistance. Learn how you and your library can sort through the maze and connect people to eviction-related information and services. You can make a big difference in the lives of these community members.
