Default Where can I get help finding housing for convicted felons in Utah?

Can anyone tell me where I can get help finding housing for convicted felons? Are there "affordable rights" available for our men? I live in Utah. Thank you!

Hi LuvMyIM and to PTO!

Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question, but I moved your question on Utah Parole, Probation & Release-forum, where you will get more accurate answers to your question. I hope you find your answers and when you get help, please let us know where and what kind of help you received, so that our other members can also benefit out of that information.

I wish you good luck with your search!

Hi there I found some information you could use as a starting point.

An easy way to start a search is to check the classifieds. Some landlords may indicate that they are willing to rent to felons. It is important to check out the area in the ad listing, as it might be crime prone. Searching the Internet for ‘housing for felons in Utah’ or ‘felon housing in Utah’ will also yield results. Be sure to check felon forums online or apartment databases as these could point you in the right direction.

The Utah Affordable Housing Database (http://findhousing.utah.gov/search.do) is a good place to start a search as it caters to individuals of limited means.


Felons may be entitled to federal aid for housing, as many of them can apply for section 8 vouchers from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/states/utah).

Various Catholic charities in Utah also help thousands of people with various needs including housing. Felons can contact the Utah Housing Authorities (http://housinguc.org/) to learn if they qualify for any kind of housing assistance such as help with rent, or finding affordable housing.

Hope this helps
