Dear Valued Rent Smart Community,

We regret to inform you that our non-profit organization is currently facing significant funding disruptions that have affected our ability to provide services. Unfortunately, this means that we are unable to continue with our Rent Smart services at this time. We understand that this news may be disappointing for you, and we apologize for the inconvenience caused.

Our team is working to address the issues, but we do not have a timeline for when or if we will be able to resume services. We appreciate your understanding as we work to resolve these challenges. We will update you on any developments. Thank you for your understanding.

Please note that all Educator trainings are cancelled for the foreseeable future.

The RentSmart staff and Board of Directors want to thank you for your patience and kind words of understanding and support as we work through our funding issues and try to find a sustainable way for RentSmart curriculum to remain relevant and accessible for you. We appreciate that our news has caused distress and uncertainty and we will try to provide updates as often as possible.

To ensure that you can continue teaching RentSmart courses in your community, we are giving you access to all of the learning materials to all Subscribed Organizations. Please log in using the button below. We strongly recommend that you download all of the materials posted for your future use. Please use local print shops to reproduce the course manuals you need.

We are working on a way to continue verifying training certificate numbers that have been previously assigned but cannot issue new certificate numbers for course participants trained after April 2023. We recommend that either you, as a certified RentSmart Educator, and/or your organization issue your own RentSmart certificates upon course completion. These could be with or without a unique certificate number depending upon the needs of your course participants/organizations/community housing providers. 

Our dashboards and course management systems will stay up for as long as possible but without our wonderful RentSmart staff working behind the scenes, problems will occur and it will take time to resolve them. Please email us with your concerns and the board members will do our best to provide answers and support using old-school technology.
