Housing Grant program

money, home, coin

Tooele Community Resource Center has state and federal grants that allow us to help individuals and families that meet the qualifications with temporary housing payment assistance.

We have watched the rental prices jump over 60% since 2015 and many families are struggling to find places to rent due to the .01% vacancy rate.  Affordable housing is needed in our County to assist families and individuals who are considered the “working poor” (they have jobs but can’t afford housing).

Did You Know?

The rental housing industry estimates 30% of a households gross income should be used to pay rent and utilities. This has become an income standard to determine whether or not a prospective tenant can afford rent and be approved to live in a particular property.

According to the industry standard rental cost index:

If you work full time at $8.00 per hour, your monthly rental payments should be $416.00

If you work full time at $10.00 per hour, your monthly rental payments should be $520.00

If you work full time at $12.00 per hour, your monthly rental payments should be $624.00
