America is facing a massive shortage of affordable rental homes, and the Covid-19 pandemic has left one in four renters struggling to pay their rent. Preserving affordable homes and protecting their residents and landlords is a priority housing-stability strategy for Enterprise.
Evictions are more prevalent than ever in the wake of the pandemic, and BIPOC and women renters are disproportionately targeted by evictions and removed from their homes.
Enterprise is taking a coordinated and comprehensive approach to protect renters from eviction and displacement and ensure that all landlords can continue providing America’s renters with stable, affordable homes.
Over the next five years, we will deliver the tools and resources to:
- Support residents and landlords with rent relief and protections to prevent evictions
- Drive greater equitable investment in existing affordable homes and communities
- Prioritize the needs of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) residents, landlords and developers
Over the next 10 years, this initiative will keep 10 million Americans in their homes.
