Rent Smart is a free, tenant training program that focuses on the knowledge and skills essential for a successful renting experience. This program strives to guide and inform participants so they may:
- Learn new skills to build positive relationships with landlords and neighbors.
- Gain confidence in their ability to find and maintain affordable housing.
- Understand the application and screening processes used by landlords.
- Learn the responsibilities and rights of tenants and landlords.
Rent Smart is designed to help those individuals who have little to no rental experience and those who have had difficulty obtaining rental housing. Participants may be first-time renters graduating from school, homeowners transitioning to renting, individuals with poor rental or credit history, or individuals who have other issues which may cause potential landlords to perceive them as high-risk tenants.
Each workshop consists of 2 sessions. Participants must attend both sessions to receive a certificate of completion that shows their commitment to being a good tenant. View the September 2018 Rent Smart Flyer for more information about this upcoming workshop!
