Rent assistance in Yavapai County.

Housing and rent assistance programs operate in Prescott and across Yavapai County Arizona. Most of the financial assistance is distributed to the needy by non-profit organizations and government agencies. Read more on the resources offered for paying rent, security deposits, and how to find low income housing.

The state of Arizona as well as Yavapai County have been hit hard by the housing crisis, and thousands of people need help paying their rent and finding affordable housing. Some of the assistance programs that operate in the region can help pay for moving costs, security deposits, first month’s rent, and offer emergency cash to prevent an eviction too. Keep in mind that the agencies do have limited funding and may have waiting lists too, so apply for rental assistance as soon as you can, before you are faced with imminent eviction.
