The MCCAC Rent Assistance Program works to help households who are facing an eviction notice and/or who are at risk of losing their housing.
Eligibility requirements for this program vary from grant to grant, as well as the amount and length of time we are able to assist a particular household.
MCCAC's Housing Case Managers work with households to determine the best course of action we think will be most helpful to the household.
Also keeping in mind that we often do not have ample funds to help all households who are requesting assistance.
At the time of your appointment households are asked to bring in the following information.
- Social Security numbers for everyone in the household,
- Identification for all members in the household over 18,
- Verification of all household income 30 days prior to the appointment
- An eviction notice from landlord.
Funds are very limited for these programs so we try and make the best use of them.
