Yardi said the Housing Authority of the County of Kern will implement Yardi’s Rent Relief cloud-based software to support its Emergency Rental Assistance program.
The emergency rental assistance program is designed to prevent loss of housing by supplementing rent payment for households impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and by helping landlords keep current with mortgage payments.
“Yardi has a documented history of processing millions of monthly financial transactions as well as creating cloud-based interfaces for end users and housing staff. I expect Rent Relief will leverage that experience for the benefit of our community and staff,” said Stephen Pelz, executive director of the Kern County Housing Authority.
Rent Relief powered by Yardi is a new solution that leverages decades of technology development and client support. Rent Relief offers portals for households to submit applications for assistance including easy upload of supporting documentation.
Kern County housing staff will be able to log on to view and process applications, disburse funds to renters and landlords and easily produce the data for state and federal oversight offices.
