About the Event

A Free Community Day for Miami Renters to Get Ahead

In the past 10 years, rents have been rising. Wages have not. Low-income renters are feeling this most severely. Finding a new place to live can be especially difficult when costs include first and last month’s rent and security deposit. Nonprofits around the country have created a new way to help renters fill in the gaps in their cash flow and get into a rental home.

They’re called housing stability loans: small dollar loans to cover move-in expenses, or help keep up with bills and avoid eviction. Home, Health & Finance! D.C. will showcase the Latino Economic Development Center offering housing stability loans up to $1,000 to cover the costs of security deposits.

These loans can be used to stabilize a current rent situation, but can also help build credit to facilitate easier access to renting or buying a home, or to achieve other financial goals in the future.
