The National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC)’s Rent Payment Tracker found 88.6 percent of apartment households made a full or partial rent payment by January 20 in its survey of 11.6 million units of professionally managed apartment units across the country.

This is a 2.5 percentage point, or 294,224 household decrease from the share who paid rent through January 20, 2020 and compares to 89.8 percent that had paid by December 20, 2020. These data encompass a wide variety of market-rate rental properties across the United States, which can vary by size, type and average rental price.

Now, it is critical that those funds reach those in need as quickly and efficiently as possible.

“What's more, it is clear that is only a down payment on the financial support that will be necessary to make apartment residents and owners and operators whole - Moody's Analytics has estimated that back rent debt had reached $70 billion by the end of 2020 alone.
