"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless." Russell Sabadosa, East Longmeadow
On the value of events: "The cheapest way to learn is from someone else's mistakes." Jane Gasek, Worcester

Rental assistance is available for renters to help pay rent even while the courts remain closed. Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) can provide thousands of dollars to families at risk of becoming homeless. Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance (ERMA) likewise can provide thousands. Both programs have an application process, an income eligibility screen, and other conditions. Both programs have funding available now. We will cover:
Who is eligible for RAFT and ERMA? Have eligibility criteria changed recently?
What can a landlord do to help renters access these funds?
How much might be available per renter? How much does the state have left to give?
What conditions are there?
How long will it take?
Does accepting RAFT or ERMA prevent me from accessing court in the future? Restrict me in other ways?
What other programs might I want to be aware of?
Attendees will leave with a step-by-step understanding of how to help a renter apply and how to move the process forward. Wayfinders is a regional subsidy administrator but the information will be broadly applicable to owners and managers statewide.
This part of the presentation will be given by H. John Fisher of Wayfinders. John Fisher has bought, sold and managed rental properties for more than 45 years. He has also worked on and off with Way Finders (formerly HAPHousing) for more than 20 of those years in many roles, including that of a Hearing Officer. John is also the author of the landlord textbook Property Management Manual for Massachusetts Rental Owners, which is now in the fourth printing of its sixth edition.
