Rent help in Carroll County Georgia.

Find charities in Carroll County Georgia that can provide emergency rent assistance or that administer housing programs. The programs are run by a combination of non-profits, churches, and even government offices. Depending on the agency and funding, that will determine whether they have grants to pay for rent or a mortgage, or whether they provide other housing solutions.

While financial help to pay for rental expenses is not that common, it may be more likely that a low income family will receive other housing support. This may come in the following formats.

  • -Overnight shelter for a night or two.
  • -Information on federal government benefits which may help with paying rent, including HUD vouchers.
  • -Placement into domestic violence shelter and/or transitional housing programs.
  • -Temporary funding as well as loan programs in Carroll County Georgia.
  • -Stable individuals leaving temporary housing may apply for security deposit help or moving cost assistance.
  • -If the agencies below do not assist, then additional options for emergency housing assistance.

There may be other resources too. Generally an applicant needs either an eviction notice or utility disconnection letter to receive financial help. There are also instances in which counseling as well as legal advice may help stop an eviction. Normally all of these assistance programs (rent, employment, counseling, etc.) are combined as one solution in Carroll County.
