COVID-19 has caused financial hardships for many in our communities, including landlords and tenants. The Washington state legislature has created the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP), a program that helps landlords and tenants find reasonable solutions with rental assistance funding. Since April, Six Rivers has ramped up our Early Resolution Pilot Program to support our courts and community members in Klickitat and Skamania Counties in preparation for when and if the courts decide to implement the program. To help landlords and tenants, we are collaborating with partners like Washington Gorge Action Programs and Northwest Justice Project. We’ll keep you posted on our Early Resolution Pilot Program news.

Here’s a two-minute video from our friends at Resolution Washington that explains how the Eviction Resolution Program works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g0SI7Pc2lg&t=30s
