Affordability and Housing
The ERAP (Emergency Rental Assistance Program) has helped 22,000 families stay in their homes. The program has been so successful that we expanded eligibility and we continue securing new funds from the federal government!
Last year, we worked with our Board of County Commissioners and dedicated community advocates to adopt our first ever Tenant’s Bill of Rights. And we adopted legislation requiring 60-day written notice to tenants ahead of any major rent increases. We also launched the brand-new Office of Housing Advocacy to help residents navigate their housing needs.
I am enormously proud of the progress we’ve made together. In 2023, we are rolling out even more programs to support all those facing skyrocketing housing costs – from middle class families to low-income households.
