Do you have questions about applying for rental assistance? Do you need other services to help you cope with the pandemic?
Sixteen community social service agencies, called Navigators, are available across the City of Houston and Harris County to support renters with their rental assistance applications and other services.

A complete list of all participating agencies can be found here: English and Spanish
Navigator agencies can help with:
