Evictions are a key source of housing instability for low-income older renters. This community is particularly vulnerable to evictions due to a complex interplay of financial, social, and health factors that place housing at-risk.
While research suggests social housing may offer some protection against evictions, older adults may still be at risk, particularly for non-payment of rent. Research on eviction practices within social housing, and with older adults specifically, is limited. As a result, there is an inadequate understanding of the factors that place low-income older adults at risk of eviction.
