Security Deposit Assistance

 

Security Deposit Assistance

 

Thank you so much for everything and to your organization for helping me and my family. We are so grateful and appreciative for the assistance.” – Recipient, CFH’s Edie Streett Security Deposit Assistance Program

Creating a safe place to call home requires a lot of different pieces coming together.  Sometimes it’s as simple as having help with the security deposit.  Applicants to the Edie Streett Security Deposit Program can reside anywhere within the 21 counties of the CFH service area.  CFH will contribute up to $200 to eligible applicants to help an individual or family move into a permanent rental home. CFH asks recipients to repay the funds they have received in small monthly increments.  Those funds provide assistance to help four or five additional applicants each year. Eligibility Requirements:

  • The monthly income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income – see below.
  • The monthly rent can be no more than half of the monthly income.

If you meet that criteria, you may apply for security deposit assistance by clicking the link bellow;
