Homeless Rent/Deposit Assistance

There are many homeless persons and families in ICAP's 14-county service area, primarily in Sioux Falls but also in other cities in the area. ICAP operates a security deposit assistance program to assist eligible persons to enter permanent housing. The applicant must be actually homeless, according to the McKinney Act description of homelessness, and must provide proof that he/she has some steady and reliable source of income (either wages/salary from a job or receipt of funds from a public assistance program). The programs will pay all or a portion of the applicant's security deposit (depending on the amount needed and grant resources in their area), either alone or in conjunction with another funder (e.g. Salvation Army, Dept of Human Services, etc.). In addition, the applicant must also agree to receive protective payee/ case management services to increase the likelihood that he/she will be able to stay in the new housing. CSBG funds are used for this assistance throughout the service area.
