Rent assistance is a way to make a little extra money when you need it most.
Here are the basics.
Rents help renters pay for rent and utilities, and it’s free for most families.
But there are a lot of other things you can do to help get by while you’re trying to pay your bills.
Here’s what you need to know.
Rental assistance is also available to many Americans who are poor and in need of financial help.
You can get help in the form of a rent check, cash assistance, or a mortgage.
If you need help getting money for food or rent, you can find free food pantries, emergency shelters, and more.
Rent assistance may also be available in some states, such as Michigan, and some states are accepting applications now.
RENTAL ASSISTANCE RENT ASSISTANTAGE is a federal program that pays a small percentage of your rent for housing assistance.
You pay the full amount of the rent plus 20% of the monthly cost.
This is the same amount that you would normally pay.
The 20% is a special formula that helps families pay rent.
If your rent exceeds your monthly payments, the amount of your payment will be reduced by 20%.
If you don’t make enough payments to cover the amount you owe, you’ll get a letter from the government and may be eligible for help.
There are some rules for getting help, including whether you need assistance for: housing expenses, health care, transportation, utilities, childcare, and child care.
If it’s your first time applying, you must tell the government you’ve been living at your current address for at least six months and you’ve had no rent payments.
If there are other options available to you, you may be able to get help with a variety of other expenses.
Some states have a program called Section 8 that helps low-income families pay for their housing.
You’ll also have to show that you can’t pay rent on your own, that you are working and have a job, and that you don)t owe any other debts.
If these aren’t enough, you might be able get help for the following: food, clothing, transportation to and from the job, medical care, rent, utilities for utilities, or other expenses you need.
There is a $1,500 limit for Section 8 payments, so if you need more than that, you should ask for help in writing the checks or ask for it from a local agency.
If the federal government wants to help you, they can offer help to anyone with a valid government-issued ID card, driver’s license, or passport.
You must have your federal identification card or passport with you when you apply for rent assistance.

The federal government does not offer rental assistance through state and local government programs.
If a government program is open to you and you have a valid ID card or a valid driver’s or passport, you have an opportunity to apply.
For example, you could qualify for a grant to help pay for the cost of a place to live in an apartment, or you could apply for a rental subsidy to help cover the cost to rent a place.
To find out if your state has a rental assistance program, check with your local government.
You could also find rental assistance information at state agencies, state websites, and other sources.

If rent assistance is the only option available to your family, you and your family can pay the remaining rent.
This usually is called a “loan” and you must repay the entire amount each month.
If no rent is paid in the month you’re paying rent, your family could still qualify for help, but you won’t get it unless you’re making a big down payment.
