Rental assistance

Post by Tinkers » Mon Nov 09, 2009 6:04 pm

Hi my name is Tina. I am currently unemployed and struggling. I had major surgery less then two months ago and am also dealing with huge medical bills. I am late on my rent and have know where to turn. Community action is unable to help so I don't know what to do. Also in January I was informed that my COBRA will be increasing from 125.00 a month to 400.00 I don't know why but am scared to go with out health insurance. Please if there is any ideas out there I would appriciate them. I am currently living in Oregon in a town called Tualatin.
Thank you
Tina :cry:

Here is a resource that will direct you to resources to get utility bill help in Oregon. Just keep contacting agencies. In particular, look for the LIHEAP crisis program. That is usually effective. http://www.hud.gov/local/or/renting/energyprgms.cfm

Regarding COBRA, the fed government stimulus program offers assistance. Did you explore that option?

Rental assistance and medical expenses

Post by Sonya » Mon Aug 23, 2010 10:24 am

Hello, My name is Sonya. I am in need of help with my rent. My husband and I are hard workers but we have hit a hardship in our finances. I've exhausted all of my loans. I still owe my July and August Rent. We also need help with medical bills. I need my wisdom tooth pulled and I can't afford it. My husband still has $4420.00 in debt with his dentist because of pain. P I am in Doraville, Ga. We can't keep up with our monthly scheduled bills. I'm in dire need of a grant that can help up catch up on our rent, electric, cable, and payoff our medical expenses and clear our credit up and put food on our table. I am trying to avoid eviction. The manager in my apt. complex has been trying to work with us but there is only so much she can do because of her boss. Now I can't make arrangements because I don't have the money to pay anyway. Please help me. Thanks in Advance,

Call the two different community action agencies, the Fulton Atlanta Community Action Authority at (404) 320-0166. The Atlanta Urban League phone 404-659-1150 may also run some rent and housing programs. As usual, the funding is limited, but you should call them to check in.

If you just lost your job definitely apply for unemployment. Not much you can do about a cable expense. No one will provide help to pay a TV bill. As far as rent, housing, and utility bills you do have several programs in Hampton and Virginia Beach area. This resource lists many of them http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... _prog.html
For example, places like the Virginia Beach and Suffolk Salvation Army as well as the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia may have aid for you. The phone numbers and contact information can be obtained at the link above.

What state and/or county? Without knowing that my reply is generic. Try the federal government Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program which the federal government funds.

The Harris county Texas and Houston area have numerous assistance programs for low income.
http://needhelppayingbills.com/html/har ... progr.html
There are agencies that run eviction prevention programs. Especially if you are about to start a new job, you are more than likely to qualify for short term help for rent.

I need emergency rent assistance this month. My rent is $360.00 and was due on May 8, 2011, but my landlord is telling me if I don't have it today or tomorrow, I must move out now. I'm disabled due to Bipolar and have nowhere else to go. The landlord would not let me sign a lease when I moved in. I have paid my rent 5 day earlier until this month. I'm very scared and have made at least 30 phone calls looking for assistance with no luck.

That is great that you made those 30 calls. Keep trying. You can't give up. Some agencies do focus on the disabled though, which would include your medical condition.
Find a comprehensive listing of rent assistance programs. Usually a landlord will work with you too, so hopefully they will in your case too.
