Rent Assistance

Rent assistance is available to low-income households through the HUD Section 8 Existing Housing Certificate/Voucher Program. Qualified families or individuals rent an existing house, duplex, apartment or mobile home from a private owner. The assisted tenant pays a maximum of 30% of their monthly adjusted income towards rent. SWKAAA guarantees payment of the remaining portion based on the fair market rent determined by HUD. Clients may voluntarily enroll in the Self-Sufficiency Program. This program is designed to coordinate services that will help families achieve economic independence.
