North Carolina definitely has a lower cost of living, and job market held up well during the recession, so not a bad idea. Good luck. So moving to Cary, NC. Many organizations may be able to offer help for paying first months rent and/or security deposits. Find a listing of assistance programs in Wake County. Call each of these agencies in order to receive emergency rental help, or funds for paying security deposits, or other types of aid. $200 is not much to get that roof over head, so hopefully you can find it.

I am recently divorced from an abusive marriage of 23 years and am seeking a government grant. It is the first time on my own and I have to pay a security deposit to move then turn around and pay rent 2 weeks later. The apartment complex I am moving in is going to require $695 for deposit plus prorate the security deposit so I should not need a grant more than $900 to move in then I will be responsible for rent in July.
I would really appreciate the help. This will help me with a new start for myself and it is supposed to be ready by the third week in March. Thank you.

Hello, I'm currently homeless due to domestic violence. I'm disabled. I need some kind of assistance moving into an apartment. I receive $733 monthly. I've been to apartments, but can't pay last and security. Can you please refer me to some kind of grant help please?

There are some grant programs. They can help with housing needs. Usually ESG is a main grant in New York City.
Try calling the United Way or Catholic Charities there, as both offer assistance programs for apartments in the region.

I need help paying back rent to nycha for $11,300 which also covers the security deposit on the apartment. I was in a domestic violence situation with my sons father while my son was away in college. I was working and my housing assistant felt it was better if she didn't put my pay stubs down with annual review to help me save money to move away from him. But my son always needed grant money for school and he was away in Texas. I had to choose to save money for the deposit for the apartment to get away from his dad or send my son money for school. If you would like to talk about this further please call me about the rent and deposit grant process. Please leave a message, my phone don't show missed calls. If I miss the call thank you and god bless you.

Texas or NYC? As they are completely different. But there are homeless prevention grants in Texas. But we doubt you can get $11,300....that is probably impossible if not hopeless for you and your apartment.
