Data show that renters who live within our poorest neighborhoods continue to have the highest percentage of eviction rates as well as the highest rent-to-income ratio at or above 50%. This must be addressed. Tim’s vision is to enact legislation on rent pricing protection and mortgage protection. Evictions should not be a permanent barrier for families attempting to move forward to stable housing and, longer term, to build assets.
In addition to rent pricing protection and mortgage protection, Tim will work with landlords, housing organizations, and the Louisville Urban League to offer second-chance housing to individuals who have been evicted. Every person in our community deserves affordable housing and rental, as well as a path to homeownership.
