The Eviction Lab Teacher's Guide - Evictionlab.org can be a resource for teachers working with students on data analysis, public policy, social studies, and more. Students in service organizations or those who act as representatives to local governing bodies may also benefit from learning about housing issues in their community.
COVID-19 Housing Policy Scorecard - State and local governments, as well as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), have issued partial emergency eviction and foreclosure moratoriums to prevent families and individuals from losing their homes during the COVID-19 crisis. The Eviction Lab and Emily Benfer of Columbia Law School have developed a policy scorecard for 50 states and the District of Columbia using 21 critical measures to evaluate each state’s response and point to best practices in housing policy. The scorecard also includes data on the number of renters in each state who could be affected by the housing crisis and links to other COVID-19 housing resources.
Eviction Tracking System - The Eviction Tracking System (ETS) monitors eviction filings in real time across a set of American cities. It allows you to see how many eviction cases are being filed in Austin, Cleveland, St. Louis, and several other cities, and to compare those numbers to historical averages. This is part of the Eviction Lab's website.
