202100292 110.MotionMOTION, submitted by Councilmember Landsman, Cincinnati families are facing unprecedented financial challenges, and the fear of eviction continues to loom for tens of thousands of our children and families. We recognize that our nonprofit partners have, and will continue to receive, significant rental assistance support. But the process of getting these resources to families quickly, and before they end up in eviction court, has been a challenge. As such, WE MOVE that the administration pursue a request for information (RFI) to determine who can build a shared data system to enhance eviction prevention programmatic performance and coordination. Such a system would allow providers to more effectively allocate relief and prevention services, keeping more and more of our children and families in stable housing. We ask that the RFI inquire into: 1. Which companies or providers could create such a data system, 2. How much it would cost the city to support the creation of one, 3. How quickly we could build the platform, and 4. How best to get our eviction prevention support providers onto AdoptPass Action details Not available
202100297 111.MotionMOTION, submitted by Councilmember Landsman, WE MOVE to request that the Administration provide an update on Ordinance 402-2019, which guarantees that eviction filing data from the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts be made available to service providers partnering with the City of Cincinnati in eviction relief services and eviction prevention initiatives. To date, we have not been able to obtain this data in a regular and reliable manner. The City may need to provide support to the Clerk of Courts to secure this data, and we encourage the Administration to pursue that support. Getting this data in the hands of our partners will allow them to help our residents struggling to pay rent with rental assistance, the ability to stay in their homes, avoid an eviction, or even avoid having to attend eviction court.AdoptPass Action details Not available
