Renter Counseling

CAP-HC's free Renter Counseling provides the knowledge and guidance you need to make the right renting decisions for you. HUD-certified Housing Counselors help you navigate the rental process, inform you of your legal protections, and advocate for you. Counselors also help renters develop household budgets, determine financial assistance eligibility, apply for rental assistance, and identify an affordable place to rent.

  • Or by paying the security deposit and first month of rent up to (2) months of the rent total after they are approved to move into a new home.

Please note: emergency rental assistance may only be utilized once in a 24-month period.
