HO288 Rental Eviction Intervention Certification: Part 1

Rental eviction has significant impacts on a person’s finances and life. Just over one-third of U.S. households are renters, who are more likely to be young people, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, and people with lower incomes. As such, those groups are disproportionately affected when waves of rental evictions occur due to local and national economic events. How can organizations prepare for a rise in rental evictions, and what skills do housing counselors need to help clients avoid rental evictions and reduce the negative impacts that result from rental evictions?1

This course will provide counselors with the knowledge, skills, and tools to be effective in working with renters in crisis, navigating the local rental eviction process, and collaborating with landlords, courts, and other social service providers when relevant.2

By the end of this course, participants will have developed a set of knowledge, skills, and abilities that will enable them to better support clients in preventing rental evictions and reducing harm when rental evictions cannot be prevented.3

There is an exam with this course, participants must pass the exam with a minimum of 80% on the accompanying exam.
