Rent Assistance in Saint Louis, MO

Hi all,

I am about to buy a large apartment complex in C class area in St. Louis, MO. There is a lot of rent assistance programs and it seems to vary greatly by city and state. I have dealt with rent assistance in Columbus, OH and Seattle, WA, and would like to know more about the experience in St. Louis.

Please share your thoughts on how easy or hard it is for tenants to apply and timeliness of payments.
