Stout’s Independent Evaluation of the Eviction Right to Counsel Pilot Program In Davidson County
Report Date: October 16, 2023
In June 2022, the Metropolitan Council approved a $2.6 million ERTC pilot program to provide legal counsel and education to eligible Davidson County tenants facing eviction. The program is being funded with federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars.
The contract period began in July 2022, with tenant representation provided by Legal Aid and outreach efforts from Conexión Americas. Conexión Americas also serves as the fiscal agent for several subgrantees: Hispanic Bar, NCRC, PATHE, and AMAC.
The subgrants were finalized throughout 2022, including with Hispanic Bar, which began offering tenant representation on November 1, 2022.
