Advertising disclosure

Our goal is to share information and products that are truly helpful to renters.

If you click on a link or buy a product from one of the partners on our site, we get paid a little bit for making the introduction. This means we might feature certain partners sooner, more frequently, or more prominently in our articles, but we’ll always make sure you have a good set of options. This is how we are able to provide you with the content and features for free. Our partners cannot pay us to guarantee favorable reviews of their products or services — and our opinions and advice are our own based on research and input from renters like you. Here is a list of our partners.

Getting Help with Rent

Nonprofit, state and federal rent-assistance programs

Not having enough money to pay rent is scary. Thanks to a growing number of emergency rent assistance programs that provide rent help, you can protect yourself in the case of an eviction. Or, you can find programs to help you get an apartment if you are homeless or displaced.

You may need to act quickly, so it’s crucial to find assistance that might be available to you ASAP.
