About Us

Credit.org is a nonprofit community service organization working to strengthen communities and improve the lives of consumers. Credit.org has achieved this mission for more than 40 years, touching more than 2.4 million individuals by offering services to promote financial literacy, stable homeownership and a healthy economy.

Rental housing makes up a critical segment of the nation’s housing and provides homes for families and individuals unable to afford the cost of ownership or whose life circumstances simply make renting a better option. 

As America rediscovers the option to rent versus own, having proactive knowledge such as understanding the terms of a lease agreement, how to calculate rent affordability and use of budgeting tools make the overall experience of renting a positive one.
