Workshops

Community education is a core component of the services provided by the Richmond Rent Program. The Rent Program hosts monthly Community Workshops to educate tenants, landlords, and others on the requirements of the Fair Rent, Just Cause for Eviction, and Homeowner Protection Ordinance.  

Community Workshop Update:
