Rent Payment Assistance
Assistance is based on program eligibility requirements, available funding, and staff availability to take on new clients. Funds are provided to families or individuals in crisis when the family or individual can demonstrate that a default or arrears (rental) was caused by circumstances beyond the family or individual's control, which significantly affected their ability to pay. There are daily assessments for program eligibility.\n\nThe Siemer Program serves qualifying families with children attending Granite Park Jr. High, Lincoln Elementary (South Salt Lake), Moss Elementary, Woodrow Wilson Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, or South Salt Lake South Salt Lake Head Start with financial assistance.
