Rental Assistance

Our Programs

OCCAC offers rental assistance services for families and individuals in Okanogan County who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The goal of our services is to stabilize families and help them find or remain in safe, affordable housing. Once the crisis is stabilized, we strive to help families attain self-sufficiency through ongoing family development.
• Eviction Prevention: OCCAC may be able to assist a household who has received an eviction notice due to non-payment. If you have received an eviction notice and are at risk of becoming homeless, contact us to find out which eviction prevention services may be available to you.
• First Month’s Rent Assistance: Assistance with first month’s rent and security deposit is primarily available to families or individuals transitioning from homelessness to stable housing. If you have located housing but need assistance with the first payment, we may have a program available to assist you.
Rental Maintenance Assistance: Families eligible for first month’s rent or eviction prevention services may be assessed for rental subsidy assistance for a period greater than one month. Eligibility is based on many criteria, including a family’s or individual’s willingness to commit to, and participate in, an ongoing family development relationship with a Case Manager.
