Security Deposit Guarantee through CRT

You may get help with your apartment security deposit!

 
You may be able to move into a new apartment, thanks to a Security Deposit Guarantee. This is not a payment, but an agreement backed by the State of Connecticut. It promises to pay the landlord if the tenant damages the apartment.
 
When the tenant moves in, the landlord receives a voucher instead of a cash security deposit. If the apartment is damaged, the landlord works with the state to get money to fix that damage. Staff is located in Hartford and Middletown. Staff speak English and Spanish.
 
To Apply 
Call (860) 560-5800 and ask for a security deposit appointment. An intake specialist will call you back. We will schedule an appointment if you meet certain qualifications. Walk-in appointments are not taken at this time.
 
Residents of Hartford and Middlesex counties may apply. Customers must be income eligible, and meet other conditions. Please call to see if we can help!
