We are pleased to announce that our new website is up and running! (The address is still the same, but the content and layout is new and improved). Our goal with this website is two-fold: to streamline and simplify the user experience for Tenants, Landlords and Educators; and to host a wide range of useful resources for housing stability.
We’ve introduced a page for landlords – they’ll be able to verify a RentSmart certificate using the course code on the certificate. In the coming days, landlords will also have access to some resources (such as web promotion tools, letter templates and briefs) as well as have their name recognized and listed on the website as landlords who accept the RentSmart certificate and are part of the housing solution.
Another upcoming online resource is the Homelessness Prevention Toolkit. This toolkit outlines ten tools to support communities and housing professionals to incorporate upstream and preventative practices into their current approach. This toolkit will be released next month, so stay tuned.
Our website will continue to list organizations that have trained RentSmart Educators as Community Partners to acknowledge the valuable work they do within their community. If you prefer the name of your organization to be removed from our partners’ list, please contact Aygul (firstname.lastname@example.org).
