Cabell County and Huntington rental and housing assistance.

The government as well as charities offer rent help in Cabell County. In addition to emergency, one time financial assistance, there are other housing resources in the Huntington area. They range from shelters to case management, legal aid to stop evictions, security deposit help and more. These programs are in addition to any rental assistance.

When applying for support, the applicant needs to be (1) low to moderate income or (2) homeless. Any type of housing assistance provided is combined with case management. So if there is in fact say money to pay for back rent, the client will also need job placement, budgeting, etc.

Even when an agency can’t assist with making rental payments or other costs (utilities, repairs, etc.) they will offer referrals. As the goal is to prevent homelessness in all of Cabell County.
