Pasco County's Human Services Department administers assistance for past-due rent, move-in deposit assistance, and electric assistance for the elderly. There is an online application process for the programs offered, and a follow up, in person appointment is required to complete your application packet. In most instances, there is a three to four week waiting list for assistance.
If you are facing homelessness or a pending eviction, please contact the Homeless Coalition of Pasco County at 727-842-8605. If your electrical service has been or is subject to immediate disconnection, please call our Human Services Office at 727-834-3297.
Qualified Pasco residents may be eligible for assistance with rental move-in costs such as security deposits and first month's rent. For move-in and past due rent assistance, there may be a period of 30-45 days after approval before payment is mailed to the appropriate party. Please be sure that your landlord is aware of this and agrees to cooperate with the program before applying.
