The North Shore Rent Bank is an initiative of Harvest Project – and it is a supporting program within our Client Care services. For eligible North Shore residents and existing Harvest Project clients, through our rent bank we offer short term, no interest loans to those who are at risk of eviction or essential utility disconnection due to a temporary shortage of funds. Our Rent Bank can also provide a security deposit if current housing is deemed unsafe or unsustainable.
As with all operating rent banks, potential clients must meet minimal loan-qualification and repayment requirements.
