Join NAA: Ask Congress to Help Renters & Property Owners Recover from COVID-19

NAA launched a grassroots alert asking Congress to include apartments in any relief package, including relief for residents and mortgage forbearance for owners/operators. 
The long-term strength of our nation’s economy hangs in the balance as lawmakers decide how best to provide relief from coronavirus-related hardships. Thus far, Congress and the Administration have offered up several solutions to support economic prosperity and as they decide how best to proceed, it’s our duty to make the apartment industry’s case.


This letter outlines the apartment industry’s requests of Congress. In order to provide the most effective relief to our residents and the industry, we are suggesting a two-pronged approach: Congress should provide direct assistance to renters as well as support for impacted property owners and operators.

We know you take seriously the responsibility to ensure your residents have a safe and stable place to call home. That’s why NAA is urging all members and apartment industry members to submit this letter to their congressional representatives.
Write a digital letter to your senator or representative now.
