Tenant Based Rental Assistance
helping households achieve housing stability
rental assistance for those in need
A New Leaf’s Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program is a rental assistance program for those who currently are, or at-risk of, homelessness.
This program offers assistance that includes: rental subsidy, utility and security deposits, as well as utility allowance. Currently, eligibility criteria for this program is determined by individual cities and HOME funding requirements.
Rental assistance can be provided for up to 24 months, helping a household to achieve financial stability and avoid further challenges in regard to housing. Assistance is intended to be a temporary solution that allows a tenant to build savings and better manage their personal finances.
Participants in the Tenant Based Rental Assistance program are expected to comply with the expectation of paying $25 a month or 30% of their Adjusted Gross household Income towards their rental expenses (whichever is higher). This ensures that tenants retain responsibility for their rental costs and are paying what they are able, while helping them save and plan for the future.
Housing Case Management services are available that offer: connections to local resources, workforce assistance, and other referrals to address unique needs. All participants will be assisted so that they are able to address their challenges, with the goal being to achieve long-term housing stability.
