Rental Assistance Data

HOME Funds Rental Program

Through this program, Lifeline can assist families with obtaining safe and affordable rental housing in Lake County.  In 2010, eligible families can receive up to $750 combined assistance for first month rent and security deposit once they have completed the application process and the new rental home has been inspected by our Housing Coordinator.  Applicants will receive information regarding tenant rights and fair housing practices.  The following are the requirements for this program:


·         Tenant must be requesting assistance for the first time.

·         Provide proof of all household gross income for the last 30 days.

·         The rental unit must have a 12 month lease.

·         Inspection of vacant rental unit to be completed before tenant moves in.
