BACS Seeks to Keep Everyone Housed: Announcing Two New Rent Relief Programs in Hayward and Emeryville

May 13, 2020
These two initiatives are based on the Keep Oakland Housed pilot program, which over two years has kept thousands of Oakland community members in their homes. On average, BACS found it takes less than $2,500 to prevent someone from losing their housing, and preserve that unit of affordable housing – preventing displacement, gentrification, and significant long-term costs to the individual and the system in trying to address their homelessness.
