RENT ASSISTANCE – Equity Access Shelter Program

The City of Topeka has initiated a centralized process for the Equity Access Shelter Program (rent assistance).

ALL REQUESTS need to go into the City of Topeka for Rent first.

Call (785) 368-9533 to start the process. The City will do an intake survey, determine the eligibility and prioritize the callers’ requests based on a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) survey. Once a person is eligible, the City will send a ticket to the local social service agencies (e.g., Doorstep Inc., Let’s Help, Salvation Army, etc.) in Topeka to take over the request. Applicants will probably get a recording, so leave one message, not multiple messages, and the City will call them back ASAP.
