Applications for funding to operate a Tenant Based Rental Assistance program will be made available to local units of government, public housing authorities, and non-profit agencies, and will be considered on a competitive basis.  Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) is a program designed to help income-eligible households with rent, security deposit, and/or utility deposits. Assistance in the form of a payment to the landlord helps reduce a household’s housing expense to 30 percent of their income.
