 +Not all those people straining to afford rentals are low income. Even those with 6 figure incomes may need help in some places (like California) or they just may have a good income but it does not come in on a dependable schedule. There are some new lenders starting to focus on this segment of the population. Uplift, for example, focuses on professionals who have moved to a new city and recent grads from college and people who want to improve their credit scores. So you may want to look to credit as a solution to your rental challenge but beware not to get tempted to live beyond what you can really safely afford.

**USDA**:  The Department of Housing and Urban Development is not the only government agency that provides housing assistance for those renting or buying  home. Interestingly, the Department of Agriculture administers a number of rural programs for both buyers and renters. And what is considered “rural” is not always way out in what you might consider the middle of nowhere. **Private Programs**  can also help you. There are non-profits that exist to help people with housing. They may be operating in your area, and they could be the answer to your prayers. Both these options are worth looking into in order to find the home where you need to live. See our article about [[grants_for_housing|Grants for Housing]] to get more detail on these programs as well as to learn more about the government programs we have discussed. If you think you could stick it out in your current home if you could make necessary repairs, check out [[grants_for_home_repair|Grants for Home Repair]]. **USDA**:  The Department of Housing and Urban Development is not the only government agency that provides housing assistance for those renting or buying  home.
