IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RENT ASSISTANCE


Progress Residential® is committed to helping you access rent assistance and rent relief programs that may be available to you.

If you are facing financial distress and are struggling to pay rent, there may be federal, state or local government or other third-party resources available to you that can provide financial assistance and additional support. We’ve compiled a list of many of those resources on this page. 

Please note: This is not a complete list and Progress Residential® does not endorse these organizations. There may also be local resources available to you that are not listed here.

For questions regarding these programs or resources, please contact the organization specific to the program or resource. Progress Residential is not able to determine whether you qualify for a specific program. Please remember, while we understand the financial uncertainty that exists today, your monthly rent payment is due in accordance with your lease agreement unless you’ve made other payment arrangements with us.
