Jesse Tree, a Boise nonprofit organization that works to prevent eviction and homelessness, announced in a press release it will hold eight rental assistance pop-up events between now and Sept. 22. The first one will take place from 12:15 p.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at Nampa Housing Authority, 211 19th Ave. N.

The staff is fully vaccinated, and case managers are visiting agency offices to assist people who are at risk of losing their housing with information, financial assistance for rent and security deposits, and support for clients who need help completing rental assistance applications.

Although the federal eviction moratorium was extended to Oct. 3, Jesse Tree said in the release that tenants continue to experience large rent increases and are served with eviction court notices across the Treasure Valley every week. The organization wants to ensure renters know resources are available to help and how to access them.

Organizations that work with individuals or families who may be at or below 30% to 80% of area median income and want to schedule a pop-up event can contact Hannah Sharp at [email protected].
