Default Accessing Homelessness & Eviction Prevention Fund

Even if you don't need help right now, please pass along this info to someone who might!

Homeless & Eviction Prevention Fund from Alberta
Employment Immigration & Industry

There is no reason to be without a roof over your head.

Apply for the Homelessness and Eviction Prevention Fund

ARE YOU?

• Having trouble renting a place because you don’t have enough money for a damage deposit, first month’s rent, moving costs, or to pay for utilities or over due utilities?

• Behind in your rent and have an eviction notice from your landlord?

IMPORTANT! APPLY even if:

• You have a job

• You own a vehicle and need it for work

• You don’t have identification – a worker at the Alberta Employment, Immigration and Industry office will take your picture and sign the back of the picture.

Everyone’s situation is different.

Alberta Employment, Immigration and Industry looks at the needs of each person individually.

If you are behind in your rent and have an eviction notice then you can get help with:

• paying your overdue rent

• paying past due utilities

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING:

Your eviction notice or a letter from your landlord and a current bank statement showing your account balance.

ASK FOR HELP THERE IS NO DOLLAR LIMIT. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF TIMES YOU ARE HELPED.

If you need to find a place to live you can get help with:

• paying the damage deposit

• paying the first month’s rent

• paying past due utilities so that you can get utilities (such as heating, electricity) at your new place

• paying moving costs

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING:

A current bank statement showing your account balance and (a) or (b).

a. A lease or rental agreement or a letter/note from a landlord that tells how much the rent and damage deposit will be.
