Webinar Series: Readying Your Organization for Rental Housing Counseling

November 05, 2020 Print ShareThis

Housing counseling agencies (HCAs) can play an essential role in reducing evictions by providing rental housing counseling services to their clients. Rental counseling can help prevent evictions by addressing tenant rights and responsibilities, working with landlords to preserve stable housing, developing sustainable household budgets, and connecting clients to eviction prevention and rental resources in the community.

HUD's Office of Housing Counseling is hosting a series of four webinars to help HCAs prepare for rental housing counseling amid the COVID-19 National Emergency:

  • The Practice of Rental Housing Counseling: Learn about the COVID-19 rental housing crisis and how HCAs can help prevent evictions and preserve stable housing through the practice of rental housing counseling.
  • Using Eviction Data and Tools in Rental Housing Counseling: Learn about the tools available to support your rental counseling work and understand the data behind those tools.
  • Partnering with Homeless and Other Housing Programs to Prevent Eviction: Learn about Continuums of Care (CoC) and how housing counseling agencies can partner with them and other community housing programs to prevent eviction.
  • The Impact of Rental Housing Counseling on Eviction Prevention: Learn about the impact of rental housing counseling based upon historical 9902 data and how agencies are making an impact through housing counseling.

For additional resources and tools, view HUD's new Rental Housing Counseling and Eviction Prevention webpage.

View the FEMA COVID-19 Housing Resource Roadmap for a description of how supplemental appropriated funds, in particular under the CARES Act and certain ongoing annually funded federal programs, can be used to implement potential solutions.
