Rental Assistance in Sacramento, CA

August 4, 2015
Just because you are 100% eligible does not mean they have the Rental Assistance funds or that you will receive a call back or even a screening. To prepare for a screening and what to leave in a message:
> 95% of the time they are out of funds.
· Have a three day notice in hand at your screening and before you leave a message.
· Have a copy of your lease agreement.
· Proof of household income and show how you will pay all of your rent next month.
· Programs will call your landlord and will not pay any of the late fees or back rent.
· Say who lives in your home such as infants, seniors, and/or disabled.
· Have a specific reason 'emergency' why you do not have all of the money for rent.
· Programs will not provide all of your rent. Show you have at least 75% of the money.
· Possibly have two programs concurrently help you. For example one program covers 100.00 and a local church gives you 25.00 to help cover your total rental assistance needs. By Victor Stark
