and rental offsets is available for people with low incomes or who are living in a natural
disaster area. Find out how to apply. You will need Housing agency FEMA Housing

agency for information on eligibility and assistance in the form of vouchers, discounts,
and public housing. You may be eligible if you have a low income,
are elderly or disabled, or were displaced by a disaster. Visit the U.S. Department of Housing website
at hud.gov. On the homepage, click on State Info, then
click on your state. For instance, if you live in Texas, select
Texas from the drop-down menu under the State Info heading. Step 2. Contact FEMA at 800-621-FEMA to find out if
you are eligible for temporary housing assistance if you were displaced from your home by a
disaster. Step 3. Find out if you can get help from your state

agency or speaking to a housing counselor at 800-569-4287. A special federal fund provides grants to
states to assist very low-income elderly and people with disabilities with housing. Maryland, for instance, was promised $13.5
million under the program. Step 4. Bring your pay stubs and identification to
your meeting with the housing authority when you apply for housing assistance. Step 5. Fill out an application for assistance and
wait to be notified about your eligibility for Section 8 vouchers for an apartment rental
or other assistance. Did you know The United States Housing Act

Thank You if this is truth. Please don't take my questioning as being rude and I'm NOT trying to be Disrespectful, I'm just Ignorant to very important information and facts. I seem to fit in 3 different types 1. Factual Ignorance, 2. Objectual Ignorance, and 3. Technical Ignorance. I am 61 plus and have come to realize that I Desperately need to know what these things mean and how they interact. If you have any time at all, which I'm guessing you don't, but if you should ever in yours or mine I would be deeply grateful.Thank you for your time. Respectfully yours Holly M.
