RFP: Seeking Facilitator

In 2022, the MN ERASE Campaign initiated its first project to evaluate involuntary displacement and extrajudicial evictions of tenants, in Minnesota, working with the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs and HOME Line as research partners.  The report, “The Impact of the COVID-19 Eviction Moratorium on Landlord-Initiated Displacement Actions (LIDA) in Minnesota,” is available here – Read more. 

The ERASE campaign seeks to expand on the 2022 research report to further explore involuntary displacement and extrajudicial evictions, utilizing qualitative research to enhance learnings, and to begin exploration of potential policy solutions. We are hoping this meeting series could take place in the fall or winter of 2023. The project goals include: 

  • Designing a meeting series for a working group of community subject matter experts, with the support of a project team of MN ERASE members, to include renter experts, to explore involuntary displacement and extrajudicial eviction experiences and identify solutions; 
  • Facilitating up to three meetings of community experts, or a combination of less than three meetings and individual interviews with community experts; and 
  • Producing a written summary of findings and recommendations from community experts. 

MN ERASE has a budget of up to $15,000 for this project.
