Housing Assistance

A home and financial stability go hand-in-hand.  Finding and renting an affordable place to live can seem bewildering.  We’re here to help with volunteers who will: 

 

  • Explain how an apartment works in America, especially the lease

  • Help you fill out the application forms for a new apartment

  • Work with you to get a Supporting Immigrant Tenants (SIT) loan from Infinity Credit Union for the down payment

  • Teach you how to be a good tenant and neighbor

  • Make sure you understand the law and your rights as a tenant

 

To be eligible for this program, you must take ProsperityME’s Basic Money Management course
