Even if you're not sure you'll qualify please come to the Rental Assistance Fair. If you cannot make it on that day feel free to call Yakima County Volunteer Attorney Services at 509-453-4400 if you have any other landlord/tenant related questions.

Don't put it off! She is fully aware that most of us pretend that problems will just go away but the sooner you get help the better outcome you're going to get. There is not shame, even if you aren't behind yet but know it will be happening in September, get it all handled now.
