Economic Eviction Assistance

Economic Eviction Assistance requires landlords to provide relocation assistance to below-median-income tenants (up to 80% of Area Median Income) any time renters are forced to move due to rent increases in excess of 10%. Most landlords do not irresponsibly raise rents more than 10%, and instead they raise rents in a way that does not force their renters to move. Those landlords would not have to pay anything. The Economic Eviction Assistance Ordinance is designed to meet the needs of tenants, not to punish responsible landlords.
