During this difficult time when housing is more critical than ever to health and safety, these workshops help educate both renters and landlords about their rights and responsibilities in their housing arrangements. Creating awareness can reduce evictions, increase housing stability, and prevent housing discrimination," said Catherine Duarte, Colorado Springs Community Development Division senior analyst.

The City of Colorado Springs Community Development has collaborated with Colorado Legal Services and Pikes Peak Library District for the last two years to present this information in an in-person format. However, the pandemic has brought the event online in a live virtual setting to educate residents on renting basics to promote housing stability and reduce evictions.
In addition to the City's partnering organizations, these sessions are also made possible by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The primary purpose of CDBG funds is to serve low- and moderate-income residents who reside within the Colorado Springs city limits. The community development division also uses its CDBG funds to provide Fair Housing educational opportunities to the community, as part of its efforts to affirmatively further fair housing.
