Renters are often first and worst hit as housing prices rise, displacement and natural disasters worsen and affordable places to live become scarce. In response to these challenges, cities and advocates are accelerating implementation of tenant and renter protections: policies that legally protect renters and tenants from unlawful eviction, mistreatment, uninhabitable homes, and skyrocketing rents to provide a level of housing security. This report provides a range of strategies that can be implemented across the country to enhance protection for renters.
