Tenant Capacity Building Initiative

The City's Tenant Capacity Building Initiative assists tenants in organizing tenant associations. A tenant association helps improve communication/cooperation with a landlord and building management, or can facilitate the purchase of the rental property by the association. Program organizers are fluent in Spanish and have a record of accomplishment with tenant associations in the city and the metropolitan area. All organized tenant associations that have registered with the city become part of the Takoma Park Tenant Association Network.

Emergency Assistance

The Emergency Assistance Fund provides financial assistance to income eligible residents experiencing a health crisis, a pending eviction notice, or notice of a sheduled utility cut off, often the result of the loss of employment or financial circumstances beyond their control. Established in 2001 by the Takoma Park City Council, the program is funded in part by tax-deductible donations from the community and managed by Ministries United Silver Spring Takoma Park.
