Supporting Immigrant Tenants has created a no- interest revolving- loan fund from which immigrants can borrow money to pay for a security deposit for renting an apartment in the Greater Portland area. By partnering with Affinity Credit Union the program aims to develop financial literacy among renter and build credit experience. By requiring education on landlord tenant issues the likelihood of the tenant receiving back the deposit at the end of the rental is increased.
