Eviction Assistance

Noone wants to deal with an eviction notice. The easiest way to avoid eviction is to pay your rent on time. Talk to your landlord if you can’t make rent that month. Not communicating with your landlord can lead to an eviction happening sooner. If you cannot afford regular renting, contact your local public housing, where they have affordable apartments to rent.

 

Having an eviction on your record may make it difficult to qualify for housing. If you owe money to any housing authority, you will have to settle that debt to be eligible for assistance again.
