Louisville is first Southern city to enact eviction right to counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).

In April 2021, Louisville KY became the first city in the South, and the 9th city overall, to enact a right to counsel for tenants facing eviction, provided the tenants have at least one child and are income eligible. The right to counsel is at the moment funded by $400,000 in federal Emergency Rental Assistance funds.
The Louisville Courier-Journal has more.
If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.

The NCCRC provided some input to advocates working on the ordinance.
