One-Time Rental Assistance Payment for November 2023

Integrated Family Community Services’ lottery for November rental assistance will accept applications Sunday, October 1, 2023, through Sunday, October 15, 2023, from current IFCS program participants. This is a limited program providing one-time payment to assist low-income households with November 2023 rent. The program is not short-term or emergency rental assistance. Households with past-due accounts, demands for payment, eviction notices, or require assistance for more than one month are not eligible to apply.

This is a tenant-based program. Low-income households currently utilizing IFCS programs may apply. Assistance is limited to households within the Arapahoe County areas of Centennial, Englewood, Glendale, Littleton, Sheridan, and unincorporated Arapahoe County along the I-25 corridor. Rental assistance is paid to the landlord directly.

To be entered into the lottery, applicants must have a signed lease, fully paid deposits, and no remaining balance from previous months in addition to meeting income and residency requirements. To apply for the lottery, applicants must first complete an Eligibility Determination Form to confirm program selection criteria is met. If conditions are met, the household will be asked to complete an Application for Rental Assistance. Only complete applications that meet eligibility criteria will be considered for the lottery.

The total funding available for this program is limited to $30,000. An estimated 15 households will be selected for November 2023 assistance. Each eligible household is assigned a number. A computer program will randomly select numbers representing households to receive assistance. If selected, households can expect to receive payment totaling no more than the 2023 calculated Fair Market Rent for Arapahoe County.

The following is required to consider a household for one-time rent payment.

Integrated Family Community Services cannot guarantee financial assistance will be provided. As an applicant, a household must qualify for the program. As a lottery, only those chosen by the computer-generated system will receive assistance. If selected, assistance may only cover a partial payment towards November 2023 rent. If approved, payment by a certain date cannot be guaranteed.
