Harvest America has been granted the HOME TBRA Program in 28 counties of Western Kansas for 2015. Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) is a program designed to help income-eligible households with rent, security deposit, and utility deposits.
With TBRA a households’ rent is reduced to 30% of the households’ income.
The TBRA Program is very helpful for people who need help to stay in their current situation, but it is not an emergency program. All income and employment must be verified by third parties. Also, an inspection of the unit is required. This takes time, but we move it along as quickly as possible.
TBRA is also very helpful for households that need to relocate to improve their situation (i.e. a safer neighborhood or a housing unit that is a healthier environment).
