Rent assistance is available in Montgomery County from a combination of government agencies and non-profits. A focus of the agencies is on preventing an eviction in the community as well as helping a family find a more affordable home or apartment to live in. So a combination of grants can be used for paying rental expenses or, for those seeking a new home, financial aid may be available for a security deposit.
Any type of emergency assistance will be combined with counseling. In fact, many of the organizations in Montgomery Alabama may require that step to be done before any help is provided for back rent. Funding is always very limited. However, if an agency can't help they may provide a referral to another local charity or housing authority.
When applying for rental assistance, applicants need proof of income and what they will do to sustain future payments on their own. For more information on services, whether case management or deposit or rent help, try an organization below.
