County Councilmember Will Jawando (At Large) is scheduled to discuss his proposed legislation to provide additional protections to renters affected by the COVID health emergency. He will take part in the Emergency Assistance Coalition (EAC) meeting on Wednesday, Sept 1. The bill would limit rent increases and prohibit landlords from charging fees accrued for late rent payments during the emergency and for one year after the emergency expires.
Ilana Branda, Deputy Chief of Services to End and Prevent Homelessness (SEPH) for Montgomery County, also will take part in the meeting.
The EAC, a program managed by Interfaith Works, is a network of providers that deliver emergency assistance to residents of Montgomery County. The Coalition includes public agencies, congregations, grassroots local assistance groups, and other human service providers groups.
The meeting begins at 10:30 am and is open to the public. Ms. Branda will speak at 10:40 am. Councilmember Jawando is expected to speak at 11 am.
