In June 2020, the City of Houston and Harris County created the Housing Stability Task Force to assist with addressing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The task force provided specific programmatic, funding and policy recommendations with the goal of:

  • Preventing evictions
  • Mitigating the impacts of this crisis on tenants and landlords
  • Stabilizing households for the benefit of public health
