South Bay Community Services
Offers a rental assistance program for low-income individuals that negotiates a payment plan between a tenant and landlord, agreeable to both parties when a tenant is behind on the rent or needs money for the security deposit. Tenant's income must exceed his expenses; if their expenses exceed their income, the tenant is ineligible. The tenant is accountable to pay the landlord; if the tenant fails to make his monthly payment, the program makes the payment (the tenant must reimburse the program). The agreement is formalized in a written contract. Program services are subject to funding availability. Also offers lists of lower cost rental housing.
