NeighborImpact has a new program that can help Bend residents who are struggling to pay their rent or mortgage.
The City of Bend Housing Assistance Program can make rent and mortgage payments for households with income at or below 80 percent of the area median income. Program participants also receive access to financial mentoring via an online workshop on managing housing expenses as well as one-on-one coaching with a financial counselor.
Funding for the program comes from City of Bend and includes $90,000 toward housing payments. Income limits vary by household size, see below for details. Qualified applicants must live within Bend City limits and live in the home as their primary residence.
To apply, visit www.neighborimpact.org/bha or pick up an application at NeighborImpact’s Bend Office. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis when complete with all necessary supporting documents.
