COVID-19 Tenant Assistance Fund

To support low-income Waltham tenants who need help making ends meet due to work disruption from COVID-19, put "Tenant Assistance Fund" in your payment description or on the memo of your check.  100% of your donation will go to assist a Waltham tenant in need - current immediate needs are:  emergency housing, groceries, diapers, and cleaning supplies.  We are working to grow our fund to provide rent assistance to those who are not eligible for city or state rental assistance programs.

Thank you for being a part of our generous, supportive community!
Bonus:  A donation of $1,000 or more earns you 50% back as a state tax credit!
