Before you begin, please be aware of the following:

When to Apply for Rent Assistance

If you do not currently have overdue rent (an outstanding balance due) or you need help with Move-In Assistance, please call our Rent Assistance Line at (970) 829-0296 and leave a brief voicemail stating your current situation. A counselor will get back to you, typically within 48 hours, to discuss options and resources that may be available to you.

Existing vs. New Rentals

This page and application process is for seeking assistance with an existing rental. If you are seeking assistance with a new rental, visit our Move-In Assistance page.

Residents outside of Larimer County

Make your selection based on your current situation:

“I am concerned about making rent this month/next month.”

Here is what to do if you are not yet behind on your rent, but worried you may be soon.

If you do not currently have overdue rent (an already outstanding balance due to your landlord), you can apply the last week of the month. If you have further questions and do not currently have overdue rent, please call our Rent Assistance Line at (970) 829-0296 and leave a brief voicemail stating your current situation.  A client counselor will get back to you, typically within 48 hours, to discuss options and resources that may be available to you.

Applications on this page can only be processed once an existing rent balance is past due, however, our housing counselors can work with you one-on-one to identify resources and options available to you, in an effort to prevent an overdue balance.
