Contact Your Congressional Representatives and Demand Protection for Apartments

The National Apartment Association (NAA) requested industry assistance in calling the critical services of apartments to our nation's congressional representatives.

It is imperative that Congress pass relief targeted relief to the rental housing industry and fix a number of problems in the CARES Act.

Please contact your Member of Congress and demand they protect apartments!

Our Congressional representatives need to:

  • Create an emergency rental assistance program for those who are impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and struggle to cover housing expenses.
  • Better tailor the CARES Act eviction moratorium provision and safeguard owners’ ability to effectively manage their communities.
  • Allow more housing providers access to mortgage forbearance and ensure fairness and flexibility in its terms. 
  • Provide financial assistance for property-level financial obligations such as property taxes or insurance payments and extend credit to multifamily mortgage servicers.
  • Expand the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program to include all multifamily businesses.

A recently introduced bill would suspend rent payments. This is NOT what we need! 

Congress Needs to Protect Apartments!
