Rental assistance in Butler County and Hamilton.

The demand for rental assistance in Hamilton and the greater Butler County Ohio region is extensive. Thousands of local families are struggling with paying their rent and housing costs. Many people never had difficulties in the past, but due to the weak national and local economy they need some short term help with basic needs and expenses, including funds for paying their rent.

Some of the leading non-profit organizations to call are below. Each center will have their own application process in place, and funding is limited. Priority is usually given to qualified low income families with children and people who are faced with imminent eviction. If a center doesn’t have available funding, many have case management or volunteers who can help people sign up for other assistance from time to time.

Call to get the specifics on their resources or to learn whether they have funding. Or some of the non-profits in Butler county may refer residents to loan programs for their housing expenses. Find a listing of services and/or who to contact in order to get help with paying rent.
