We’ve all run into hard times. When money challenges arise, rent is one of the hardest things to pay. Whether you’re experiencing a hard time right now or making sure you know where to turn in the event that you end up in this position, it is surprisingly difficult to find help. That’s why we’ve compiled four organizations and programs that assist with rent.

Modest Needs 

This program provides short term grants to working individuals and families. They have different grant types and even allow others to donate to you. Applying is fairly easy and done completely online.

Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program

The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP) fights to keep people off the streets and in their homes. Contact your county’s housing authority to find out about the HPRP in your area.

Catholic Charities  USA 

Catholic Charities has over 160 agencies across the country. They offer many types of assistance, including rent, when funds are available. Contact the agency near you to find out if they help. If you are a member of a religious organization, check with them as well to see if they offer similar assistance.

211

This organization helps people search for help with almost any resource imaginable. You can search for rent assistance in your area. If you’d prefer to speak to someone directly, you can call them at 2-1-1.

If you are having trouble paying your rent, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Although it may be a little harder to find, help is available.
