Who is responsible for paying the security deposit?

NRHA will provide a grant to pay the security deposit for Tidewater Gardens residents.

Before a security deposit is paid, the following must happen:

  • The HCV process must be completed
  • The new home must pass the required Housing Quality Standards inspection
  • The Tidewater Gardens resident must sign and provide a copy of the new lease to their People First USI coach

A deposit payment will be paid directly to the new landlord within seven (7) business days after the above steps are completed. It is important to note, any security deposit or credit being held by NRHA on your current apartment will not be refunded to you; instead the funds will be applied to the grant amount for your move.
