•To assist persons to find temporary housing and assist them in
obtaining and moving into permanent housing.

HOUSING ASSISTANCE programs provide rental aid, move-in
costs and other services.

RENT AND UTILITY ASSISTANCE targeting unemployed, low
income persons.

All programs are low-barrier and adhere to state and federal anti-discrimination laws.

• Having too little or no income

• Having poor credit or financial history

• Having poor or lack of rental history

• Having involvement with the criminal justice system

• Having active (or history of) alcohol and/or substance use

• Having a history of victimization

• The type or extent of disability-related services or supports that are needed

• Lacking ID or proof of U.S. Residency Status

• Other aspects that are perceived as indicating a lack of “housing readiness,” including resistance to receiving service
