Rent Smart Train-the-Trainer

November 30, 2018
8:30am - 3:30pm
Brown County UW-Extension, located in the Neville Public Museum
210 Museum Place
Green Bay, WI 54303
Cost: $75 per participant

Receive the tools and curricula you need to deliver the rent smart program. Rent Smart provides practical education to help people looking for rental housing find, get, and keep suitable housing. Rent Smart focuses on the knowledge and skills essential for a successful renting experience. It challenges participants to know and understand their rights and responsibilities as a tenant, as well as know and understand the rights and responsibilities of their landlord. Emphasis is on forming a strong landlord-tenant partnership. Establishing a positive rental history is much like having a positive credit report, and Rent Smart starts participants on the right path for success.

Thank you!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in Planting for a Purpose this year! These local gardeners' generosity with their time, resources and produce gave more Brown County community members access to the fruits and vegetables needed to lead a healthy life. Numbers are still coming in, but as of today, pantries and donors have reported 11,092 pounds of fresh produce donated in 2018, up from 7,690 pounds at this time last year. That's amazing! We will share a final update early next year.

Thanks again from all of us from the Green Bay Packers and Brown County UW-Extension. Keep an eye out for 2019 signup. All local gardeners are encouraged to participate and help the impact grow!
