RENT assistance dashboard is live

Thursday, October 15, 2020 by Tai Moses

The city’s Relief of Emergency Needs for Tenants, or RENT Program, now has a dashboard – the RENT Program Progress Dashboard –  for those who want to track progress and reporting data on how the funds are being distributed. According to the city, the dashboard “provides aggregate data on the distribution of rent assistance to households served including the total amount and median amount of rent assistance, median family incomes, household size, number of children, geographic distribution of assisted households, and the race/ethnicity, sex, veteran status, occupations and disability status of the head of household.” Since RENT’s launch in late August, it has “provided nearly $850,000 in total rent support to over 750 low-income households which are unable to pay rent and experienced a Covid-19-related income loss.”
