COLUMBUS, Ohio (PRWEB) May 13, 2020
REIProperties Columbus today announced the launch of a new website (http://www.REIPropertiesColumbus) dedicated to providing valuable information regarding low income, Section 8, housing. Founded in 2005 by Jeff Ihlenfield, the company has established a broad portfolio of single-family properties and works closely with local and national organizations to help secure homes that are safe and affordable for both individuals and families.
The site answers questions about how to apply for and obtain Section 8 housing, and points visitors to resources that can help identify the documents and forms needed. In addition, because the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on those receiving public assistance, the site also offers the latest information on the virus and links to various materials that can help explain and provide insight into the consequences facing the affordable housing market and those who depend on it.
“The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is in charge of and oversees the Section 8 program through the local Housing Authority. The program assists millions of Americans by subsidizing the rent for their homes,” said Ihlenfield. “However, it can be complicated to understand. I established this website to help people with the information they need to navigate the system and get the assistance they need. I am passionate about affordable housing and dedicated to making sure that Ohioans, no matter their economic status, have a safe and comfortable place to call home.”
REIProperties Columbus works with various community resources to help secure homes for those that are most challenged by life and circumstances. It is affiliated with the Community Housing Network, helping people from every walk of life, and Veterans Administration Services, dedicated to ensuring that our veterans are not overlooked and can receive the public assistance they need.
Ihlenfield, however, feels strongly that the pandemic currently sweeping the nation, while having an effect on everyone, is particularly troubling for those receiving housing assistance. “Those Section 8 individuals and families understandably have questions about whether the government will continue to subsidize their monthly rent or whether the program will suffer from the recession that many predict is sure to come. There are legitimate concerns, and hopefully the website will help answer some of those questions and alleviate some of those apprehensions.”
