*In response to recent reports of up to 800,000 government employees facing furlough due to a federal government shutdown, one organization has taken steps to lend a helping hand. The Low Income Housing Authority, through their web site at LowIncome.org, is helping people learn about their financial options.
The website is an online tool that offers valuable information, resources, and tips on how to find and apply for low income housing, food stamps, and other government assistance programs. It features a searchable database of more than 3,000 programs in all 50 states.
Those who are going through a financial crisis can use the site to find an affordable place to live, to be informed about what their options are, and to be encouraged that there is help available. In addition, the site can be used as a resource on how to best deal with evictions, foreclosures, bad credit, child support, and college funding for low-income students.
