HUD offers free home rental assistance grants in a few different ways, including the Section 8 voucher program. Low-income individuals searching for places to rent can use the government-issued vouchers to help make their monthly rent payments.
The Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program also provides grants for rental assistance by helping veterans and their families. This program provides rental assistance vouchers and security deposit assistance to those who qualify.
The USDA Rural Development office also provides vouchers and rent assistance for struggling rural families. The beneficiaries typically include low-income individuals who are elderly or disabled and live in multi-unit housing buildings.
