Social Media Outreach Toolkit
Purpose: Increase Access to Connecticut’s Temporary Rental Housing Assistance Program (TRHAP)
In Connecticut, Black and Latinx households have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis. They have greater rates of infection, job loss, and housing instability. Systemic discriminatory housing policies mean that families who rent their homes are overwhelmingly people of color. In last week’s Pulse Census Survey, 40% of African American households in Connecticut reported that they had little to no confidence in being able to pay next month’s rent. Outreach to Black and Latinx communities about the State’s rental relief program needs to increase, especially as more funds become available.
Below are social media images and statements we hope individuals and organizations will share on their channels and with their constituencies to increase access to the program for households with limited English, and lower income households with limited political connections.
