Butler County rental assistance

When facing an eviction, one time rent help may be provided to struggling families in Butler County. Most of the financial aid for housing expenses will be for applicants that both prove their need for help and can show the ability to sustain the future rental payments on their own. Find the primary non-profits and government organization to contact for emergency housing assistance in Butler Pennsylvania below.

After a full review of the applicant's request, a decision is made whether or not to provide any money for paying back rent. If no funding is available, or the tenant does not qualify, then referrals may be given to everything from legal aid to government grant intake sites. Any type of rent help in Butler County is also often combined with case management and other social service work.

Families in a crisis that are also on a low income can look into assistance. Any aid may come in either the form of a cash grant or no interest loan, but in either case the funds will be paid directly to the landlord for the rent that is due.
