Rental housing is often the ideal option for individuals or families, but it is important to ensure that you are fully informed before making rental decisions.
Wyoming Housing Network can help you learn more and navigate the process. Counseling focuses on helping renters overcome specific obstacles in order to become successful long-term renters. Additionally, it includes financial capabilities education, budgeting and management tools, referrals to community resources and more.
It is important to know your rights during the process of renting, buying or securing financing for housing. According to the Fair Housing Act, it’s illegal to discriminate against anyone based on their race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability or whether or not they have children. Wyoming Housing Network can help if you believe that your rights have not been respected per this act.
You can learn more about the Fair Housing Act here, or make an appointment with a rental counselor at Wyoming Housing Network.
