Walton and Newton County rent assistance.

In a crisis, Newton and Walton County agencies provide emergency rental and housing assistance programs. There are non-profit, churches, and charity organizations that work to help tenants stay in their existing home or apartment. The resources available range from grants to deposit help, loans to pay back rent, and other financial aid.

The organizations do not discriminate based on age, race, or religion. Everyone from single mothers to the underemployed, senior citizens and others can apply for rental assistance in a crisis. Or if the housing challenge is unpaid utility bills or a dispute with a landlord, those topics can often be covered too.

Note funding in Walton and Newton is limited. The money available for paying rent often runs out, but the social workers will do their best to find a solution.
