When you’re having problems with money, paying rent can be difficult. There are government programs that help low-income families get into apartments, but finding temporary rent help is a little harder. However, it is possible. When looking for help paying your rent, be sure to check these five places:
 
This website can direct you to financial resources in your area, including help with rent. Just enter your zip code in the top right corner and click ‘Find Services’ to find assistance in your area.
 
Like Suntopia, 2-1-1 can direct you to local resources. However, they also have a 24-hour hotline, which may be more convenient for you.
 
Each Salvation Army location has different programs, but many of them offer rent help to those that qualify. Contact your nearest agency to find out if they can assist you.
This organization started in Paris and made its way to the US, where they now have locations in every state. Like The Salvation Army, services vary by agency, but many of them help with rent for those in need.
 
Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Recipients
This grant gives money to organizations that fight poverty. Community Action Agencies are the main recipients of CSBG. Contact your local agency to find out if you qualify for assistance.
 
These are the main ways to find rent help. Find all of the local assistance in your area using Suntopia and 2-1-1 or go directly to The Salvation Army, St. Vincent De Paul, or your local Community Action Agency for help.
