How to Save Money





Bartow County Georgia rental assistance.

Emergency rental assistance as well as shelter is available from non-profit and government agencies in Bartow County or surrounding communities. The amount of resources provided in the immediate Cartersville Georgia area is limited so some applicants may need to also apply in nearby towns for rent help.

However, there are various ways to get help. Whether a security deposit is needed, money to pay back rent to stop an eviction, or shelter for a homeless person, resources are available. Applicants for any housing program will generally need some form of income as well as plan for self-sufficiency. There is also generally priority given to at risk individuals, namely senior citizens, the disabled, or single parents.

The main agencies to try for housing and rent assistance are below. If one organization can't help, they may have referrals to other Bartow County organizations. It is also often a decent idea to try multiple approaches. So it can be effective to try legal aid as well as applying for a loan or grant to help with rent.
