Assistance for rent and housing needs is available to both tenants and the homeless in Rogers, Mayes, as well as Nowata County. The goal of the various programs is to prevent an eviction to begin with and that is the primary reason that emergency rental assistance is available. However, rehousing is also an option, and that includes for a security or utility deposit as well as transitional housing.
The process involved by each of the non-profit organizations will vary. Some will offer direct financial aid, and others will offer referrals to government rent programs such as ESG grants. However in all cases the organization wants the tenant to seek help before it is too late. It is more challenging to place someone into transitional housing in Rogers County, and many people would not prefer that option.
Since resources are limited, many of these agencies can also offer referrals. So if someone is not qualified, they can be directed to other charity or non-profit resources for paying rent or other bills.
