Non-profit agencies in the Virginia Beach region can offer local families short term support to pay their rent and related housing costs. Services are available from a number of charity organizations, government agencies, and non-profits in Virginia Beach. While some locations may have direct financial assistance, others can provide referrals or help people apply for programs. If funding is no longer available, then case managers can often refer clients to other options, such as section 8 housing in Virginia or government aid.
The terms of each emergency rental assistance program are set by the agency in question. Any type of grants or cash assistance is usually offered on a first come-served basis. The focus is on people who are at risk of homelessness if they do not get help. Potential applicants need to call or stop by for information.
If you do receive rental help, most agencies in Virginia Beach will require that the family or individual also sign up for some type of case management service. So the benefits offered will almost always be time limited, and will often require the client to either get a job or attain new skills over the midterm.
