WHAT IS THE CITY OF RICHMOND'S EVICTION DIVERSION PROGRAM?
Richmond’s voluntary Eviction Diversion Program (EDP) helps tenants achieve housing stability and avoid unnecessary evictions by assisting to pay past due rent to the landlord. This program is available only to those renting within the City of Richmond.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread job losses, the EDP is allowing greater flexibility in providing financial assistance.
The Federal Moratorium on evictions is in effect until July 31, 2021. You Need to Take Action Now
This program benefits all parties: the landlord gets paid, the tenant gets housing, and public health gets protected.
Since October 1, 2019, the voluntary Richmond’s Voluntary EDP has helped hundreds of landlords get rent money owed, prevent the loss of rent during an eviction, and avoid the process of finding a new tenant.
If you rent OUTSIDE of the City of Richmond or do not qualify for this program, contact the Eviction Hotline: 1-833-663-8428, PRESS 1.
