How bad is it?
According to a recent survey of local apartment managers,
we found that over 500 households in 20 apartment communities in the Clarkston area were unable to make rent in April, and that number is expected to grow.
So, what exactly is CAER?
The Clarkston Area Economic Relief Fund is an emergency alliance of community members who want to make sure families in the neighborhood are able to keep their housing. Donations are tax deductible and managed through a donor-advised fund set up through The National Christian Foundation.
Funds are disbursed by mini-grants to local non-profit partners who assist in vetting applications and paying apartment management directly upon application approval.
