Help with rent in Cabarrus County.
Regional and local Cabarrus County agencies provide emergency rental assistance as well as a number of housing programs. While some of the non-profits, churches, and charities are located right in Cabarrus County as well as the city of Concord, other organizations that offer rent help are based in nearby towns or counties.
The exact type of financial aid as well as housing services provided will vary. In general, any money or loans to pay for back rent will be very short term in nature; often one time payments. The funds will also be combined with case management, job programs, budgeting, and other financial services. Some Cabarrus County may also be referred to more long term rental assistance programs or low income, subsidized housing. Section 8 vouchers will be one resource used.
Agencies will also set priorities as well. In general, any funds will be targeted at applicants who are otherwise self-sufficient but faced a one time crisis. There will also be housing priority given to senior citizens, single parents, the underemployed, and others. Call one or more agencies below to inquire about their rent assistance programs.
