Update on Tenant Services Due to Coronavirus
Compliance staff have had several questions regarding holding tenant events in light of the Coronavirus outbreak. The health and well-being of residents is our utmost concern.

  • Developments may temporarily suspend any tenant services that involve tenant gatherings which may pose a threat to both staff and the residents (monthly movie nights, monthly game nights, Easter egg hunts, etc.).
  • Once the threat of Coronavirus is over, you may continue with resident services.
  • Any quarterly or seasonal tenant services which would have occurred during the temporary suspension can be made up later in the year.

Please contact Multifamily Compliance Department at   if you have any further questions.
New Resource: Myths About Affordable Housing
As we all know, there are many myths surrounding affordable housing. We have created a resource countering the four of those myths. We have placed this infographic on the Data & Statistics page in the Multifamily section of our website. We have also been sharing these myths on our social media channels over the past month and will continue to share them on a regular basis.

We wanted to share this resource in the event it can be of use in your public education efforts surrounding affordable housing. Please visit the Data & Statistics page of the website to get a PDF copy you can print and use at your convenience.
