Rent Assistance

Rent and utility assistance is a program that can help you stay housed by assisting you with rent and/or utilities at a time of financial hardship. Please complete the application below and drop it off at The Primavera Foundation Resource Center (702 S. 6th Ave.) or email it to

If you need assistance with the application or have questions, please visit the Homelessness Intervention and Prevention drop-in center at 702 S 6th Ave. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.


You may be eligible for the program if you meet the following criteria:

  • You have been issued a 5-day notice because you were late on rent.
  • You have experienced a hardship that caused you to be unable to pay rent (example: loss of job, major medical bill, car repair, etc.).
  • Your income meets the program qualifications.
  • Other eligibility requirements may apply.
What You Can Expect

If you submit an application and do not hear from Primavera within 5 days, we are not able to assist you for that month.  If you still need assistance the following month, you are welcome to reapply.  

If you receive a call about next steps for your application, you will be asked to provide the following documentation, within 5 business days:

  • Photo ID for all adults
  • Social Security card(s) for all members of the household
  • Birth certificates or proof of citizenship for all members of the household
  • Five-day notice or late utility bills
  • Proof of hardship
  • Income for all members of the household for the last 30 days (employment, Social Security, unemployment, etc.)
  • Other documents may be requested to determine eligibility.

Utility Assistance

Using the same application as you would for rental assistance, Primavera can also provide
assistance through the Home Energy Assistance Fund to low-income Arizona families and
struggling households to pay energy bills from Southwest Gas. This includes: current and past
due charges, including deposits, late charges, reestablishment fees, and other related costs and
