Landlord Surveys Point to Need for Continued Outreach on Availability of Emergency Rental Assistance

A new report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies and Terner Center for Housing Innovation, The Impact of the Pandemic on Landlords: Evidence from Two National Surveys, compares findings from recent surveys on how landlords have fared during COVID-19. The surveys found that many landlords are still unaware of or are not participating in rental assistance programs, with one survey finding that 58% of landlords with rent delinquencies do not have any tenants participating in a rental assistance program. The report suggests that continued outreach regarding rental assistance is needed, as are services like landlord-tenant mediation and counseling. NLIHC previously highlighted two reports detailing findings from both surveys.
