We Need You! Rental Assistance Needs Survey

Posted By: Jon Lowder Blog ,

Late last year the US Congress approved a new COVID-relief package that includes $25 billion in rent payment assistance. Those dollars will be distributed through some local municipalities that have over 200,000 residents (in the Triad those are Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Forsyth County and Guilford County) and the rest through the state of North Carolina. Each municipality and the state are creating their own systems for distributing the funds which should be ready in the coming weeks. (The National Apartment Association has provided a full summary of the act, including eligibility requirements, here: https://www.naahq.org/news-publications/full-summary-consolidated-appropriations-act-2021).  

In an effort to understand how many PTAA members have residents who might qualify for rental assistance we are conducting a short survey. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey as it will help us keep our local officials informed about the scope of the potential assistance that is needed. If you are answering for multiple properties please complete a separate survey for each. We will not be sharing information on any individual community, but we will compile data so that we can help our local and state officials understand the scale of the need out there.
