Pensacola area rent assistance.

Non-profits across the region may offer rent help to residents of both Escambia as well as nearby Santa Rosa County Florida. While administering emergency assistance for helping a tenant stay in their home or apartment is a priority, there are also short term transitional housing solutions in Pensacola.

The agencies that provide these rental assistance programs may issue the qualified family a grant or a no-interest loan to use towards a payment. They can also provide support to the person for a long term solution, and this may be referrals to section 8 vouchers or public housing. The crisis is therefore addressed and the staff will also coordinate a program to help the tenant maintain the home over time.

Low income families in the greater Escambia County area have several places to turn to for security deposit or rent help, and they include the following. It is recommend to call for rental assistance before an eviction notice has been served.
