There are all kinds of Government assistance for each state. Go to your cities website and see if there is a link, or better, yet type into the browser,
What apartment buildings give rent assistance?
Here is an example on how some work:
Lets say the Basic rent is $700, you qualify because of low income, the government gives the apartment landlord $200 to subsidies and you pay only $500 per month. Some will include unities too! It may take awhile,to check around and you can always ask if they need help for exchange for rent!
The best of luck to you, Kristin Dodson, Realtor
