People's Resource Center (PRC) offers emergency rent and mortgage assistance to qualifying clients who are unable to pay rent or make a security deposit due to a temporary financial crisis. The purpose of the program is to protect families facing temporary hardships from falling into homelessness.
Clients must live in, or be moving to DuPage County, and have a lease agreement or mortgage. Funds for this program are limited, and clients must meet specific requirements to be considered for rent or mortgage assistance. PRC clients can learn about eligibility requirements.
How to Get Started
If you think you may qualify for this program, call 630-682-5402, ext. 323 and leave a message with your name, phone number, and a short explanation of your situation. You will receive a call back from a staff member.
What to Expect
If funds are available and you appear to meet the program requirements, you will be offered a more in-depth interview. Be sure to bring the requested documents related to your financial and housing situation. Please note that all payments from PRC will be made directly to the landlord or other appropriate service provider.
If funds are not available, or if you do not qualify for PRC's program, staff members will try to connect you to other sources of help.
