Rental Assistance and Climate Resilience

“How can rental assistance be apart of climate resilience?”

 

When a climate disaster strikes, residents may be unable to work at their normal jobs or leave their living space. This may cause them to lose income, which can land in eviction if they can not pay their rent on time. If rental assistance can be provided, then they can stay in their homes and weather out any difficulties, thereby increasing the region’s adaptive capacity. This is the connection between Rental Assistance and Climate Resilience.
