Find a way home: Get help with your rent.

Tough times and unexpected expenses may make it difficult to afford your rent as well as other bills. For applicants who qualify, there are a number of programs available that provide rental assistance based on factors such as:
  • Income and financial situation.
  • Number of people in your household.
  • Need (if you are currently homeless, elderly, or disabled).
  • Other specific requirements determined by the program or property.
Programs that can make it possible for you to have part of all of your rent paid include national (federal), local (state, city or county), and nonprofit (charitable organizations) options. The type of program for which you may qualify to receive rental assistance and even get help with your utilities payments depends on each applicant's individual needs. Other benefits available may include help with job training, counseling, child care and more.

The largest federal program through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers:
  • Housing Authority vouchers (Section 8 program) for low-income individuals and families that can be used to lease a home at many types of communities.
  • Rental assistance vouchers for seniors and/or disabled persons.
  • Housing assistance for veterans and their families through Veterans Supportive Housing.
  • Emergency rental assistance and financial support for basic needs like food and medical expenses.
