Interest Form: Rental Assistance

This program will pause October 1, 2022 due to limited staff capacity to administer the service. All interest forms and questions will be answered Monday, October 17, 2022. Assistance will not be provided during this time.

Eligibility 

Please note: all 5 items below must be true for you to be considered for IFCS’ current Rental Assistance Service:

  2. I am the renter of an active lease in the Arapahoe County areas of Centennial, Englewood, Glendale, Greenwood Village, Littleton, Sheridan, or unincorporated Arapahoe County.
  3. I owe less than three months’ rent. (Please note: Requests for payment towards first month’s rent and/or deposit are not eligible for this program.)
  4. I have proof that my household’s income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

If the above eligibility criteria are met, your rental assistance interest form will be sent to an IFCS Resource Navigator who will work directly with you through the application process, determining eligibility and authorizing rental payment. Any rental assistance provided through IFCS will be made directly to the landlord.

If the above eligibility criteria are not met, we regret to inform you that IFCS is not able to provide Rental Assistance at this time. In this case, we encourage you to seek other resources. Learn more about resources in your area at Mile High United Way: unitedwaydenver.org/2-1-1
