San Antonio, TX (May 12, 2021) – Today at 12:00 P.M. CST, the National League of Cities (NLC) will host a webinar on how states and cities are working to create and improve Emergency Rental Assistance programs to help keep stably housed millions of renters who are behind on their rent and are at risk of losing their homes. Updated guidance from the Treasury Department and joint recommendations from NLIHC and NLC to elected officials can help communities minimize obstacles, maximize uptake of rental aid, and ensure these critical federal resources reach households with the greatest needs and are distributed equitably.   
 
Join Councilwoman Rebecca J. Viagran, the National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC), the National League of Cities (NLC), and Mayors and CEOs for U.S. Housing Investment on May 12 at 12 pm CST for a discussion with key leaders from the Biden administration, elected officials, and policy experts about the new Treasury guidance and examples of how states and cities have incorporated best practices into their ERA programs to help ensure funds reach the households who need it most. 
 
The public can join America’s local leaders as they share insights on their ongoing work to rebuild and their goals for Washington to bring forward a bipartisan infrastructure package that reaches everyone nationwide.
 
This event will feature:

  • Gene Sperling, Senior Advisor to President Biden and White House American Rescue Plan Coordinator
  • Noel Poyo, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Community Economic Development, U.S. Treasury Department
  • Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland, California and Co-chair of Mayors and CEOs for U.S. Housing Investment
