GoSection8 has compiled a "Risks for Renters" Survey that was conducted in late April 2020. The results of the survey show that 95% of renters need help paying for rent during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As these are uncertain times, unfortunately a lot of people have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 crisis, however it is imperative that we look at the positives. "Renters should not have to worry about being evicted from their homes and building owners should not have to worry about losing their buildings due to COVID-19," said Richard Cupelli, President/Founder of GoSection8.com.
Many people are not familiar or aware of rental assistance programs and GoSection8 is here to help out renters. They want to help families find affordable housing and if you or anyone is looking for that help, please visit GoSection8.com.
