Many states offer rental assistance programs supported by the state government. Moreover, citizens can apply for grants to be used to pay for rent too. Grants vary by state.

Section 8 is offered in every county, but there is often a long waiting list or the funding has already been disbursed. Many counties offer individual rental assistance services in lieu of PHA funding.
