Happy Holidays: Celebrating Our Community
Posted December 10, 2021

Reinvestment Fund is committed to making communities work for all people. The wealth we strive to build isn’t just about economics—it’s about being part of a social fabric that is strengthened through partnerships.

The past year pushed us to connect in ways we never had before; bringing years old partnerships into new endeavors to strengthen the early child care field; stretching our reach to develop data rich studies to inform policy; and supporting our staff, on a journey where everyone can thrive professionally and personally.

This holiday season, we celebrate our work together with a look at a few highlights from the year. Our impact is greater today because of our partnerships—thank you for the good you do!

Words from the Field: Practitioner Perspectives on Eviction Process Improvements in Philadelphia
Published 2021

Since April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and the evictions moratorium have drastically reduced Landlord-Tenant court activity, allowing Philadelphia renters to stay in their homes during a period when an eviction would subject them to risk of contracting and spreading the virus. If the moratorium set to expire on July 31st 2021 is not extended, notwithstanding innovations like pre-filing mediation and rental assistance, there will be a backlog of cases to process in court and the amount of pressure under which at least some tenants (and landlords) will be operating will be heightened. It is a critically important time to address decisions around court procedures and resources to ensure that the eviction process operates in a way that is both fair and efficient for all parties. Our newest research brief looks at the process in Philadelphia and identifies ways in which the court experience can be improved and made more equitable for both tenants and landlords as the city emerges from the pandemic.
