About the Program

Rent Well, a program of Transition Projects, is a 15-hour tenant education curriculum that provides individuals with the support, knowledge, and expertise they need to become successful tenants.

Historically, this curriculum was developed for those who had prior barriers to housing. Individuals that might have been denied housing because of past histories of homelessness, addiction issues, mental health concerns, criminal backgrounds, evictions, poor credit, no or poor rental history, and other barriers that have limited their ability to rent. However, this course can be beneficial for anyone wanting to know more about their rights and responsibilities as renters.

The Rent Well curriculum is broken up into twelve 70-minute sections and can be taught through in-person classes by certified instructors, over Zoom, or as a stand-alone eCourse. These sections cover everything from Fair Housing Laws, the rental screening process, how to talk to a potential landlord about screening barriers, credit repair and building, how to maintain a healthy home, the eviction process, and much more.
