Dodge County rental assistance.
Dodge County tenants and homeless residents can get rental and/or housing assistance from a number of places. All across the county, including the cities of Beaver Dam and Juneau, are charities, non-profits, and government agencies that offer help. Find everything from rent assistance to shelter, government grants, loans, and other financial aid for housing needs.
Another option available in Dodge County Wisconsin will be income based apartments for low income families. This is for residents on section 8 HUD housing vouchers or anyone who is struggling. The tenants, many of whom are handicapped or persons living with a disability, seniors, or single moms will have a lower monthly rent and often energy payment in an effort to make the apartment more affordable. So not only may money for rent be given, but also utility bill help or funds for paying a deposit.
Depending on many factors, any emergency rent or housing assistance will be paid out in different forms. It may be as a loan, lower monthly rental rate, or a cash grant. Note the demand for housing in the county is very high and resources go quickly. If needed, locate additional resources to pay rent.
