Washington County and Stillwater Minnesota rent assistance.

The rent and housing programs available in Washington County range from financial aid from non-profits to government resources. For those families that are living on a very low income, they may also apply for section 8 vouchers or be placed into low income apartments. Below is more information on the primary rent, security deposit, and housing resources in the Stillwater area.

Most of the programs will focus on homeless prevention. This means that a resident facing an emergency and that has an eviction notice may be first in line for rent help. The next priority will be on assisting the disabled, senior citizens, or families with children. In most cases, the Washington County agencies want the applicant to have a source of income.

Any funds for rental assistance are combined with case management as well. This is done as the goal is to help break a cycle of homelessness or evictions in the community.
