It is a fact that there are so many people who are only a pay cheque or two away from not being able to pay their rent.
We are pleased to announce that we have launched the North Okanagan Rent Bank, which will help to increase the housing stability in our community for individuals who are experiencing short-term financial difficulties.
The Rent Bank program is a homelessness prevention program that helps to provide housing stability for low to moderate income renters who are unable to pay rent or utilities due to an emergency that compromises their ability to pay.
Here at CMHA Vernon we are focused on promoting mental wellness and having a place to call home is an important part of that. The North Okanagan Rent Bank will provide our communities with free, no-interest, short-term loans and access to relevant services in North Okanagan Communities.

If you would like to start the process to determine if you’re eligible for a loan, complete your pre-assessment application here and a member of the rent bank team will contact you within 1-2 business days.
Please note that you will be redirected to the BC Rent Bank website to complete the online Pre-assessment form. BC Rent Bank and CMHA Vernon collect, use and disclose your personal information for assessment and administration purposes in accordance with the BC Rent Bank Privacy Statement.
