Tenant-Based Rental Assistance

The HOME Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program utilizes Federal funds to support communities by providing utility, deposit and ongoing rental assistance. Commerce TBRA funds are contracted to local providers. Commerce does not provide direct rent or utility assistance. Eligible households are referred to TBRA through local Coordinated Entry Systems.
