NAHREP Urges Swift COVID-19 Economic Relief in Letter to White House and Congress

March 20, 2020

Slowing the spread of COVID-19 and preventing the loss of human life must be a priority. In addition, it is critical that government swiftly and decisively addresses the impact the coronavirus is having and will continue to have on the nation’s economy. NAHREP wrote a letter urging immediate action to protect the housing industry and Latino families through these difficult times.

NAHREP Announcement on COVID-19

March 18, 2020

Staff and Operations

In the interest of the health and safety of our employees and in compliance with recent government policies, NAHREP will be transitioning to a remote work plan this week. This will apply to all of our employees who work in the San Diego office and around the country. Over the next few days while this transition takes place, there may be some short-term disruptions of service, but we should be fully operational within a week. We are confident that our service to our members, chapters and partners will soon be as strong as ever. We are not sure how long this remote working plan will stay in effect and will notify you of any changes. As we work through this process, your support and understanding are greatly appreciated.

Travel Policy

Effective immediately, NAHREP will restrict all non-essential travel for our employees, board and volunteers.
