Each month during 2021, Kiser Group will contribute $2,000 through its Rent Assistance Program on behalf of tenants in need to Chicago-area landlords or property managers for rent owed. Each month we will document how the money was allocated.
Rent Assistance Update
In the latest installment of the program, Kiser Group worked with CLK Properties, a real estate investment company, to allocate $2,000 in rental assistance.
“Across the country, Americans have struggled to stay afloat during the past 15 months,” said Craig Koenigsberg, CEO of CLK Properties. “We’ve seen many of our residents, despite best efforts, face challenges while navigating the pandemic that led to them not being able to make ends meet. We commend the Kiser Group for making a real difference in the lives of Chicago’s renters through this program.”
“Kiser Group has several charitable initiatives, but given the economic hardships people face as a result of the pandemic, we sought a way to get money directly into the hands of those who need it most,” said Lee Kiser of Kiser Group. “We realized our clients would know those most in need of help with rent, and we are grateful for CLK’s participation.”
CLK Properties Impact Story
After receiving the $2,000 rental assistance allocation, CLK shared the following update.
“We decided to split the generous donation among four worthy residents at four different properties,” said Koenigsberg. “Each recipient carries a balance incurred at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and they have been working to pay those down. The gift of $500 to each of these residents is merited and greatly appreciated, as they have worked honestly with us regarding their situation and will not be facing eviction.”
