Updated: January 1, 2022
We have created this page with updates on the latest rental assistance resources for our residents. Please know that we are here for you, and will be updating you on any operational or policy changes.
As your property managers, we are aware of the impact that COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is having on our local communities. We understand that many of our residents have lost their jobs, been put on leave, or have had hours severely cut back due to the shutdown and/or reduced services of restaurants, gyms, venues and many other businesses.
Our team thanks you for your continued understanding and support.
Federal Economic Impact Payments
As a result of the recently signed CARES Act, the majority of Americans will start to see some financial relief in April through economic impact payments being issued by the Internal Revenue Service. The payments, also referred to by some as stimulus payments, are automatic for most taxpayers. No further action is needed by taxpayers who filed tax returns in 2018 and 2019 and most seniors and retirees. You can check the status of your payment at the following website:

If tenants have been unable to pay rent due to financial hardship caused by COVID-19, they may be eligible for rental assistance from the state. The Colorado Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) can help renters as far back as April, 2020. Help can include past due, current, and two additional months of expected rent costs. After the initial assistance, you can apply for additional assistance, if funds are still available.
