Eviction Prevention: Countering Homelessness

  • May 16, 2021
  • 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The Trump and Biden administrations shared one largely un-heralded concern: that massive waves of evictions caused by pandemic-driven unemployment threatened a tsunami of newly homeless citizens. To counter this frightening threat, both presidents committed major funds to programs and strategies designed to protect both tenants and landlords.

But widespread concern about whether massive emergency funding would actually reach the intended recipients, mobilized talented leaders in the public and non-profit sectors to design effective state and local entities to implement this important national priority.

Tony Johns will describe the pivotal role Crossroads and other non-profits have played in tackling this urgent task of eviction prevention. This class will also describe how state government, United Way and other key collaborators exerted heroic efforts to quickly create the agency infrastructure necessary to make good on this massive federal investment in preserving affordable housing and avoiding displacement.
