KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Monday afternoon, the Vine Neighborhood Association released a letter announcing their recent decision to provide a blanket April rent waiver for our commercial and residential tenants at their two properties. The relief in the form of a 100 percent rent waiver for the rest of April for a combined total of $20,000.

"In light of the unprecedented global health and economic crisis in which we together find ourselves, the Vine Neighborhood Association has made the decision to provide immediate emergency rent relief to all tenants of our properties, which include seven residential and fourteen commercial units at our Heart of the Vine (formerly Central Corners) building at the corner of South Westnedge and Vine Street, and four residential units on the 900 block of South Westnedge," VNA said in the letter.

The April rent waiver is intended to provide extra time and financial solvency for our tenants as they file for unemployment and apply for emergency assistance for their businesses.
