Help with rent in Blount County.

Find help for paying rent in Blount County Tennessee. Programs throughout the Maryville region provide tenants with one time, short term rental assistance as well as other housing support. This ranges from shelter to security deposit help, section 8 vouchers, and free legal aid to stop evictions.

Almost all of the non-profits that offer funds will assign the applicant with a case manager. They will process applications as well as review a copy of the lease, determine if qualified for rent assistance, and review other criteria. If the applicant is homeless then programs assessed will include shelters, security deposits grants, and/or rapid rehousing. Note that much of the rent help in Blount County is available from referrals only, and seniors, single parents, and the disabled often take priority.
