Event Recap: Establishing a Local Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Thank you to everyone who joined CHAPA and MHP for Wednesday's virtual training on Establishing a Local Emergency Rental Assistance Program. For those who weren't able to make the training or who want to review what we covered, the recorded session is available on Youtube.

Many local communities are looking for ways to respond to the urgent housing needs of their community in response to COVID-19 and are considering utilizing CPA funds, Housing Trust funds, or other local resources to do so. Thank you very much to our speakers, Shelly Goehring, Whitney Demetrius, Eric Shupin, Stuart Saginor, Jennifer Van Campen, and Amanda Chiancola for walking us through how to determine the needs, what resources you can utilize such as CPA and Trust funds, how to develop and implement a local Emergency Rental Assistance program, best practices, and how legislative efforts at the state level such as the Eviction and Foreclosure Moratorium and statewide resources such as RAFT may impact your local efforts.

We have provided contact information for all of the speakers as well as some useful links and materials shared by both the speakers and participants on the call. Thank you as well to Shelly Goehring from MHP for providing this Emergency Rental Assistance Webinar Q&A to answer questions raised during the session.

Please contact Dana LeWinter with any additional questions.
