Roni Wilder with Nebraska RentWise joined Not Alone to share information about RentWise, a tenant education program that helps people find and keep decent, safe, affordable rental housing that meets their needs.
The curriculum takes an active-learning approach and stresses tenant responsibility. Participants earn a certificate after completing a minimum of nine hours of education.
The RentWise Workbook/Organizer helps a tenant store rental records, provides how-to information on unit maintenance, and help tenants create collaborative relationships with landlords and neighbors.
