I need some help, or a miracle. We are looking for a place to rent. Apartment or house, ANYWHERE in Pasco County. Here’s the catch, we got approved for the SHIP program through Pasco...this is NOT HUD or Section’s just a program that helps you pay the deposit, first and last months rent to help you get moved somewhere. We are already paying for a motel weekly ($386 a week) so it’s been IMPOSSIBLE between that, food, gas, diapers, etc to save the money to put down on somewhere. Anyways, so the program will pay up to $2,259 for a 2 bedroom (which equals out to $753 a month) or $2,619 for a 3 bedroom (which equals out to $873 a month) help get us moved in...the catch is that they have to have a lease saying that rent is equal to or under those amounts per month which has made it IMPOSSIBLE to find somewhere. WE DONT CARE TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE! My husband has enough income to pay more than those amounts, that’s just the max they will agree to pay! This is NOT a monthly payment, this is a ONE time amount they will pay and then we will pay everything monthly after the move in. If anyone knows of any private landlords who would be willing to help, please let me know. I have called everyone on their list and there is either a waitlist out the wazoo or they aren’t willing to let us pay the difference and put their approved amount on the lease. I’m desperate. We are paying almost $1,600 a month in a motel 😭
