Event description

Description

Rent Well, a program of Transition Projects was created in 2009 and is a 15-hour tenant education program taught by certified instructors who are affiliated with current Rent Well community partner agencies. Students of the program are mostly low-income individuals that may have barriers to either becoming or staying stably housed.

During this class, instructors teach students how to:

  • Identify potential screening barriers
  • Understand how and why a landlord will screen them
  • Review important personal records; such as credit, civil, and criminal reports
  • Create an individualized plan for stable housing
  • Build a household budget that makes paying rent a priority
  • Review rental agreements to understand common terms and expectations
  • Understand the landlord’s perspective
  • Communicate effectively with neighbors and landlords
  • Be knowledgeable about moving-in and moving-out of rental units in a professional manner
  • Understand the eviction process and how to avoid it
  • Maintain a clean, safe, and healthy home

If you are either looking to teach this course at your Rent Well affiliated community partner agency or just want the basics of tenant's rights and protections, the Tenant Educator Academy is for you.

What the Tenant Educator Academy offers:

The Tenant Educator Academy has two different tracks depending on the level of knowledge that you want to get out of the course.
