Meet Sarah: 
Sarah Kmon has studied and shared nonviolent communication (NVC) in her community since 2017. She works to practice (and it takes practice!) the principles of NVC in her parenting, marriage and building a home and community. 

The opportunity to share NVC is a rare gift to offer tools to inner freedom and deeper connection. Sarah blogs about raising children through nonviolence at sarahkmongrowinghearths.substack.com and offers coaching to individuals and couples to bring nonviolence into their home.

EVICTION RESOLUTION PILOT PROGRAM IN GRAYS HARBOR, PACIFIC, AND WAHKIAKUM COUNTIES


The ERPP helps landlords and tenants resolve nonpayment of rent cases through dispute resolution and access to rental assistance and legal aid. The landlord and tenant may be able to access rental assistance to repay the rent owed, work out a plan for the tenant to pay the rent owed over time, or create a plan to move out without an unlawful detainer action.

The local Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) helps tenants and landlords communicate through informal and formal processes including conciliation, conflict coaching, rental assistance navigation, and mediation.  DRCs are impartial and serve to help you and the tenant to resolve the issues.

IF YOUR COUNTY WAS OPERATIONAL DURING THE BRIDGE PROCLAMATION

NOTICE TO LANDLORDS and TENANTS
The “Bridge Proclamation” extending some eviction moratorium protections expired at 11:59pm on October 31, 2021. Potential evictions for unpaid rent from March 1, 2020 until the present are now subject to the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP), as enacted in April, 2021 (SB 5160 Section 7, RCW 59.18.630).
 
Landlords must engage the ERPP process before an eviction for unpaid rent may proceed to court. ERPP begins when a landlord serves a tenant and sends the local dispute resolution center an ERPP Notice along with a 14 Day Notice to Pay or Vacate. In some counties where a landlord sent these notices during the eviction moratorium or Bridge period for rent due from March, 2020 through July, 2021, new notices may be required under the ERPP. For unpaid rent due between August and October, 2021 only, previous ERPP Notices and 14 Day Notices to Pay or Vacate may be sufficient. Landlords and tenants are encouraged to consult legal counsel.
