Webinar: Increasing the Housing Security of Vulnerable Renters Through Rental Assistance – Nov 17

Posted by Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia on November 16, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic caused financial hardship for millions of U.S. renters who accrued rental debt because of lost income and jobs. The federal government responded by providing rental assistance to states. But as people return to work and our economy expands, questions remain about the impact of the pandemic on housing instability and how to include as many people as possible in the recovery.

Register now for a virtual webinar on November 17, 2:00-4:20 p.m. EDT, in which we’ll explore the research behind rental debt and lessons learned from relief policies and programs. You will also hear about long-term solutions for increasing rental housing security from national experts.

Featured speakers include:

  • Raphael Bostic, President and CEO, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
  • Peggy Bailey, Senior Advisor on Rental Assistance, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
  • Rebecca Yae, Senior Research Analyst, National Low Income Housing Coalition
  • Other experts in the field
