Affordable Housing

A comfortable and safe place to live. It’s something most of us take for granted. But the truth is, many of us know someone who might someday need shelter from one of life’s storms, big or small.

Rural Resources is here to help with many housing and home maintenance needs. And if we don’t have the specific program or service that can help someone weather their storms, we can guide them to the place that can. We are committed to ensuring that all residents of Northeast Washington have a safe, reliable and affordable place to live.

Eviction Rent Assistance Program (ERAP) is available to participants that live in Stevens, Ferry and Lincoln County.   If your rent or utilities are past due, we may be able to help.  This rental assistance program is currently operational per Governor Inslee’s recently signed Proclamation 21-09.  For more information on this program, please call 509-685-6101 and leave a voicemail with your contact information.

Important Notice to our Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) and
Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Participants

Are you receiving funds from the COVID-19 (CARES Act) stimulus bill passed a few weeks ago?  There is no need to report this to us!  Again, voucher holders, please note, the stimulus check (or direct deposit) you may receive from the federal government is considered a temporary, non-recurring/sporadic income.  There is NO need to report this income.
