To support our tenants, we have created the Common Wealth Development Emergency Program Fund. One hundred percent of proceeds will go directly towards rent relief for our tenants to help provide stability in these uncertain times. For those still working or who are otherwise secure, we would greatly appreciate your help in directly assisting your fellow citizens by donating to the fund.
Though it appears the federal government will be offering some form of assistance in the coming weeks, the immediate financial uncertainty facing our tenants grows more dire by the day. Many are at elevated risk for medical issues and should not be in a work environment, and many are otherwise unable to work from home. Therefore, it is essential that we help where we can by alleviating the financial and emotional stress related to paying rent.
We need your help to raise $700,000.00, which would be enough to cover 4 months rent for all of our tenants. Please consider supporting them during this crisis.
