In September 2021...

...the Chattanooga City Council approved Mayor Tim Kelly’s request for a $500,000 allocation to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga (CFGC) for the prevention of evictions and to reduce homelessness in our community resulting from the pandemic.
 
With these resources, CFGC expanded its Eviction Prevention Initiative (EPI) pilot program. The EPI is a partnership between the City of Chattanooga, CFGC, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga, and Legal Aid of East Tennessee.

OUR GOALS

PREVENT EVICTIONS & INCREASE STABILITY

Through legal representation, case management, and access to coordinated funding.


COLLECT & SHARE DATA

To inform the scope of the current eviction crisis and inform policy solutions.

Why are we here?

Our city’s recovery from the pandemic, its growing population, and new local, state, and federal resources all present a window of opportunity for our residents and policymakers to act strategically on the housing issues impacting our neighborhoods.

Through continuous improvement strategies and rigorous data collection and analysis, the EPI will expand our understanding of Hamilton County’s housing needs and create system-level change opportunities.
