Help with rent in Clark County Ohio and Springfield.

The Clark County Ohio government Family Services office as well as charities combine resources to offer emergency rental assistance to tenants that are in a crisis as well as funds to help with security deposits. The goal is to both prevent homelessness as well as rehouse individuals that do not have a place to live. Other housing and rental assistance in the Springfield OH area near you, listed below, include legal aid to tenants, section 8 or motel vouchers and back payment help.

When applying for rent help, any financial help comes with conditions. The applicant needs to be able/willing to work or be in job training/part time role. Free budgeting classes, case management, and self-sufficiency is also required. The funds available in Springfield Ohio for immediately paying rent are limited to what donations and government grants are available, so many tenants will be turned away.

When all funds are used up, or if the applicant is not qualified, they can always seek a loan. Or they can move into transitional housing until they get back on track or apply for HUD section 8 low-income housing vouchers in Clark County. In either case funds for paying a deposit, back rent, or even energy bill will always give priority to the most deserving that show the ability to sustain their home or apartment on their own.
