Rent and Utility Assistance

The Johnson County Red Shield Center offers rent and utility assistance to Johnson County residents.  Due to the limited availability of funds, assistance is given on a first come - first serve basis.  Utilities include electric, gas, and water/sewer.

To apply for rent assistance, you will need to provide a copy of your current lease or a letter from your property management company on their letterhead with lease dates that is signed and dated by management.  If renting from a private landlord, you may submit a letter from your landlord.  It must be signed and include your landlord’s name and phone number, as well as your current address and lease dates.

To apply for utility assistance, you will need to provide a copy of your most recent utility bill that shows the balance due.

A valid photo ID and proof of income are required to apply for rent and/or utility assistance.

Rent and Utility assistance applications are processed by appointment only.  Appointments are scheduled on the first two Thursdays of each month.  

For the fastest and easiest way to access our application, please click here to fill out our online application form and a representative from The Johnson County Red Shield Center will contact you within 24 business hours.
