Rent Assistance
Rent and utility assistance is a program that can help you stay housed by assisting you with rent and/or utilities at a time of hardship. Please complete the application on our website (listed above) and gather the required documents and drop it off at The Primavera Foundation Resource Center (702 S. 6th Ave) or email it to evictionprevention@primavera.org.

If you need assistance with the application or have questions please visit the Homelessness Intervention and Prevention drop in center at 702 S 6th Ave on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:00am and 12:30pm.

    You have been issued a 5-day eviction notice.
    You have not received rent assistance in the past 12 months.
    You have experienced a hardship that caused you to be unable to pay rent (example: loss of job, major medical bill, car repair, etc.).
    You have the ability to pay next month’s rent.
    Your income meets the program qualifications.
