Community Agency Partners

The Rent Well program works by training instructors at other agencies who then are able to teach the course at their own organization. These partnered organizations are called Community Agency Partners, or CAPs, for short.

CAPs are either non-profit agencies, publicly funded organizations like schools, or governmental housing providers, such as housing authorities that have signed the necessary paperwork with Rent Well, paid a licensing fee, and have trained instructors. Once all those steps are completed, the CAP can start hosting classes.

The Rent Well Program gives basic guidance and ground rules about teaching expectations but it is up the CAP to decide how the courses will be taught are their location.

CAPs are decided how often they want to teach classes, the days and times they want to teach, if they are going to charge for the class (a max of $60,) and if the classes will be specific for current clients of their organization or will be open to the public for anyone to join. Currently, we have many CAPs but because the cost to an agency for each student is about $60 and most of the CAPs relay on grants and fundraising, like non-profits, most CAPs choose to only teach Rent Well to those they are already working with or have worked with in the past.

Below is a list of CAPs by county. For those that only teach classes to their clients, they contact information will be limited. However, if you are a person looking to get into a class and notice an agency below, contact the person that you have been working with and ask them if you can get into their Rent Well classes.
