We know that many homeowners are facing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to health and safety challenges. Homeownership programs with lasting affordability are rightly seeking ways to support their homeowners in this challenging time, including reducing monthly housing costs where possible. Join Grounded Solutions Network in unpacking why, when and how some programs are deferring or waiving monthly ground lease and other program fees, especially in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. This short webinar, targeted at practitioners, will review the purpose and reasoning behind program fees, considerations for if and when to waive or defer fee collection, and highlight some program’s approaches in response to COVID-19.
