EMERGENCY RENT & MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE / TENANT & LANDLORD SERVICES
Housing First Counseling
Safe and affordable housing should be available to all members of our community. Tenants and landlords need to know about their rights and responsibilities to avoid costly disputes and ensure successful tenancies. QCAP provides a number of Housing Counseling Services including:
Information about tenant rights
Informal Tenant/landlord counseling
Counseling regarding eviction or loss of subsidy
Assistance with appeals if you are turned down for housing
Limited emergency rental assistance
A representative from QCAP is at the Quincy District Court for Summary Process Evictions each Thursday. That representative serves as an advocate and informal mediator.
QCAP offers Affordable Housing Workshops on a monthly basis. These workshops help explain the various types of low-income and subsidized housing and how to apply to each of them. Assistance with sending out applications is also provided. Registration for these workshops is required. Please contact us at 617-479-8181 x376 for more information.
QCAP also assists with completing and sending out low-income and subsidized housing applications to anyone who has attended the Affordable Housing Workshop.
QCAP does not provide individual housing search assistance for those looking for market rate units.
Emergency Rent & Mortgage Assistance
QCAP may have limited financial assistance for income-eligible homeowners and renters who are behind in their payments, and need assistance to stabilize their housing situation. This assistance may, in some instances, be used for start-up costs for a new unit. Restrictions apply.
If you are in need of assistance, call QCAP’s Housing Intake Line at 617-479.8181 x376. Even if funds are not available, we may be able to connect you with other supports and/or funding sources.
