It has been taking a bit more time (in wisconsin) but so far I've never had them send it to the residents, thank god. From start of application, to me receiving the check, it's about 2 months minimum.

I'm in Texas, This may sound cruel, but before you judge, know that I've spent countless hours GETTING assistance for my residents for the past two years... we're done!

We haven't pulled ourselves out of the program yet, but we're not ACTIVELY participating anymore. Notices and filings will be done on time now. No more waiting months for rent. If the check gets here on time, so be it, but we're also toying with the idea of non-renewals. This is coming to a close folks... the money won't last forever, so I'm more interested in filling the apartments with those that have the ability to pay.

SAME. I have literally spent hours and helped my residents get 10's of THOUSANDS of dollars. I have one who was a 'nanny' and every three months she reapplies and gets $3500 each time. I am starting to feel like some are just milking the system. I have already non renewed a couple based on their only income being the Cares Funding. I think it's supposed to end here at the end of 2021 so we shall see. My bosses won't just outright deny someone unless there are other issues other than non payment. But I have many other things to do. I have the ability to apply online on behalf of residents and the process is very time consuming.

 Texas Rent Relief program told us that is fraud because they checked to see if they paid. We called resident and told them the the program will report fraud and start prosecution and they came in and paid real quick so we could report back.

Have you signed up for  -R&c[0]=AT15Li5HdMmdG-imS5c74kJGQO44HcpOQjwas_hZ7XKlwGhurwigGNexetAz8wU-fAFvfCChgERV3DpGXS1Eht_kXDg58Tq7fJPDCozCAJZUQB8OBkKlWhK624bklQ37uoPGIsGMzxVu_d1F3uSBW05IWQqI]Bill.com ? Also, they have a fraud line you can call.

It is the invoicing for TRR, you set up ACH payments instead of having snail mail checks.

I have collected almost $200,000 from TRR and $170,000 from COA Rent and about $10,000 from Travis County. Let me know if you need help, I can send screen shots to you

I applied in May and finally got funding last week. It was approved in May. The idea was good, but execution had been horrible. I hate the program.

Execution is a problem here too, you can sends the needed documents to their portal or by email but it seems the two do not communicate with each other therefore I'm emailing and uploading to their portal multiple times and they say they are mailing the tenants the check because they are not getting the required landlord documents and yet they do have they just can't seem to locate them!

It was becoming a serious issue for me as I was expected to keep paying the mortgage on time
