Back by popular demand: the Common Interest Communities Education Series!

The first session is on September 25 at 9:30 am. The topic is Legal and Legislative Updates, covering recent changes in Virginia law affecting common interest community boards and owners.

Currently, the workshops will be held virtually using the Zoom platform. The workshops are free, but registration is required.

The City of Alexandria in partnership with Alexandria-based law firm Mercer Trigiani is sponsoring a series of free workshops related to condominium and community associations during FY2022. The goals for these classes include educating first-time homebuyers about the structure and governance of condominium communities; strengthening the knowledge of community board members in understanding, managing and budgeting; and helping communities understand state law related to open meetings and governance.

On August 3, 2021, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a new order temporarily halting evictions in locations where there have been surges in COVID-19 and increases in cases of the Delta variant. The moratorium is in effect through October 3 and covers all renters living in communities, including the City of Alexandria, that meet these criteria. Information of community transmission can be viewed on the CDC COVID tracker (https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view).

Rent relief related to pandemic income loss continues to be available for Alexandria residents. The Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP) provides rent relief to both renters and landlords:

 RRP provides eligible renters with assistance to cover rent payments past due beginning April 1, 2020. Renters can submit applications online or call 703.962.1884. Visit https://www.dhcd.virginia.gov/rmrp for more information.

 Landlords can apply on behalf of tenants to receive financial assistance for past-due and current rental payments. Landlords can submit applications online, email [email protected] or call the City of Alexandria Office of Housing at 703.746.4990 for eligibility assistance. Submit applications here: https://www.vhda.com/BusinessPartners/PropertyOwnersManagers/Pages/rentrelief.aspx

The City’s Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) Office of Community Services (OCS) also provides rental assistance to eligible households facing a housing crisis or homelessness. Residents can call the DCHS Customer Call Center at 703.746.5700 or text 703.346.5599 to learn about rental assistance, as well as other available emergency assistance.
