Strengthening Tenant Protections and Housing Affordability 

Shriver Center participates in White House meeting with tenant leaders, advocates, and providers.

On November 14, 2022, the Shriver Center on Poverty Law was invited to participate in a White House meeting to discuss the Biden-Harris administration’s efforts to strengthen tenant protections and improve rental affordability.  

At the meeting, which included over 70 tenant leaders and advocates, housing providers, legal advocates, and housing policy experts, administration officials underscored their commitment to ensuring all people have access to decent, safe, and affordable housing.  

Director of Housing Justice Eric Sirota represented the Shriver Center at the meeting. Eric has led federal advocacy to enhance access to subsidized housing, provide consumer protections to tenants, and limit discriminatory tenant screening practices.
