Rental assistance programs are comprehensive service programs for households with a solvable gap. These programs usually combine financial assistance for rent and utilities with an aggressive action plan for activities that household members design with a case manager. Funding is limited, eligibility requirements apply, and participating is subject to funding availability.
Eligibility Requirements vary by available funding. Generally, due to limited funding, applicants for assistance must:
- Have a solvable gap (future ability to sustain your living expenses without assistance)
- Meet income guidelines and other requirements for available funding
- Meet HUD’s definition of homeless or at risk if not for this assistance
- Be willing to actively participate in case management.
How to Apply
Obtain request for assistance packet here, in the CinA Housing Resource Center, or by request
via US mail or e-mail. Call to request packet via mail (541-889-9555 ext. 100).
We are open to the public Monday through Thursday from 9:00a-4:00p and Friday 9:00am-12:00pm. All prospective participants must fill out a Service Request Packet (all packets must be complete before they will be reviewed). Service Request Packets can be picked up at CinA’s Housing Department or on the link below. Once a packet has been completed and submitted to CinA, they will be reviewed twice a week for eligibility and participants will receive an Applicant Eligibility Notification (either by mail or phone) that will notify a potential participant of any follow up.
Packets may also be dropped off in person, mailed in, or faxed to (541) 889-0768, when applicants provide call back contact information.
