$800 For Your Security Deposit

Impression08 started this conversation

Several states and more and more local organizations and even non-profits provide money for renters with grants or loans that can be used for security deposits. Programs constantly come and go but the state of Delaware has provided grants to nonprofit agencies to administer 2 security deposit programs. Two counties in Florida provide grants to cover deposits for people at certain incomes, and New Hampshire guarantees landlords the full amount so the renter can make payments on a security deposit. This information was collected from NLIHC, 1012 Fourteenth Street NW, Suite 610, Washington, D.C. 20005, 202/662-1530. To locate available programs in your area contact your state housing office or social services office, or your local reference librarian who can assist you in finding other organizations who might provide this assistance.

 in response to homelinss...   Try to work out a payment arrangement on the back rent with paying the future rent. Try to get a second job to help with the back rent. Or start looking for another apartment or a room to rent before an eviction shows up on your rental history. Your rent should be your priority, especially when you have no where else to go. I don't know your circumstances or situation, but you have to get on your grind to handle this before it gets any worse. You can't sit around hoping its going to work out. Make it work.
