Housing Assistance

The Tehama Community Action Agency connects low-income families with resources designed to help get safe, permanent housing.  Working together with HUD and other agencies, when available, we may be able to refer people to programs that help with security deposits, rent, utility payments and low-income housing. 

Tehama County Community Action Ageny has limited funding available to provide deposit assistance to qualifying families.
