For clients within the City of Spokane:

We had funding for one program that covers the residents who live within the limits of the City of Spokane. The need was immense, and we regret to inform you that our waitlist is full for this variety of rental assistance.

The City of Spokane will start rental assistance for residents within the City of Spokane on June 1st.

You may find more information by clicking the website below, once it becomes available:

We currently have limited funding for rental assistance for Spokane County residents who live outside the City of Spokane.

Bear in mind that that this assistance has very specific qualifications. We invite you to click below to begin your application.
