Effective Monday, March 23, 2020 a drop box will be available to residents for rental payments.  Please keep in mind that Concord Housing accepts payments by check or money order onlyYour money order must be filled out completely with your address and the rent statement must be submitted with your payment.  This will ensure that payment is applied to the correct account.
