In 2022, we worked with CityHealth to make Legal Support for Renters (their term for a right to counsel) one of the key elements in their latest Policy Package.  CityHealth's mission is to "advance a package of evidence-based policy solutions that will help millions of people live longer, better lives in vibrant, prosperous communities."  As part of their push for Legal Support for Renters, CityHealth has released:


  • A report co-authored by the NCCRC and Enterprise Community Partners entitled Addressing America's Housing Crisis.  The report that addresses three policie that can address the country's housing crisis while furthering health and race equity.  One of the policies is a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction.  We recently had a webinar on the report: check out the recording and slide deck
