Most government agencies will assist you with finding a rental that participates in their subsidy program. Many non-governmental and non-profit agencies will assist you with emergency rental funds so you can stay in the rental that you already live in. Most of the time funds are paid directly to the landlord. Be prepared to provide proof of residence and financial need.
