Webinar: Landlord Tenant Mediation Toolkit & Grant RFP Released
Aug 18, 2020
Register today to join the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania for for the release of the “Building Blocks to Create a Landlord Tenant Mediation Program Toolkit and Funding Opportunity”. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, August 18th at 2 p.m. Learn more and register.
Across Pennsylvania, communities are preparing for a likely surge in evictions due to COVID-19 related income loss, expiration of additional federal CARES ACT benefits and protections, and the pending expiration of the PA eviction moratorium. We all are working to find the solutions that keep landlords and tenants working together so both can survive this pandemic without losing their homes and businesses. We believe landlord tenant mediation is one of the critical solutions needed to ensure low-income renters, landlords, and communities as a whole come back stronger.
The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania is supporting community efforts to build or expand mediation programs in an effort to stabilize landlord-tenant relationships and prevent evictions in two exciting ways:
• Release of the Toolkit: Building Blocks to Create a Landlord Tenant Mediation Program. In this toolkit communities will finds the information they need to create a local pre-filing Landlord Tenant Mediation program
• $10,000 grants with capacity building and technical assistance for 5 communities establishing Landlord Tenant Mediation Programs as a response to COVID-19.
Mediation is an effective tool to address landlord-tenant disputes and avoid court involvement. It is a model that has been used at the community level prior to the pandemic and is a critical component of a comprehensive and longer-term strategy to stabilize landlord-tenant relationships and preserve a tenant’s rental housing situation.
Registration will close at 1pm on August 18th- 1hr prior to the webinar start time. You will receive instructions from the Housing Alliance with personalized sign-in information within 3 days of the webinar.
