IHS Housing Program Provides Rental Assistance & Security/Utility Deposits

The Housing Program’s main goal is to assist as many families and individuals as possible to either prevent them from becoming homeless or to help them out of homelessness. To accomplish this task, the Institute for Homeless Services (IHS) has several different programs available that assist households by providing housing subsidies, security and utility deposits, first month’s rent, or possibly even past due rent. Each program has different criteria, and applicants must provide documentation to be eligible. The Housing Program may also assist with obtaining and retaining suitable rental housing, provide case management services and landlord support as well as mediation of landlord/tenant issues.
