Now more than ever, more people are seeking assistance and the good news is that here in the Treasure Valley, it's available.

The help is coming from the Boise City & Ada County Housing Authorities and it's pretty significant. Currently in the City of Boise, over 1,000 people are receiving a helping hand and there's actually MORE assistance available and even more ON THE WAY-- in other words, if you or someone you know is eligible this could be a financial game changer for you. You aren't "milking the system"---this is what these funds are here for.

In order to qualify for this financial help, your gross income cannot exceed 80% of the "Area Median Income".

Rent assistance can go on for up to an entire YEAR--12-months--of covered rent.  Even long is possible if funds remain available. All sorts of factors can count as indirect impact, too--such as the cost of food or medical costs.
