HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -  This is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

Do you currently rent an apartment or house, or are you interested in renting or possibly owning a home? Do you want to learn the best ways to locate a rental house or apartment or the costs of being a renter? Do you want to know your rights and responsibilities as a tenant and the benefits of renting versus owning?


Answers to these questions and many more will be available during a free, two-hour renter education class sponsored by the Mississippi Home of Your Own program. The workshop is set for 1:30-4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24 at the Multi-County Community Service Agency at 2900 Saint Paul in Meridian.

In its 18th year of service to Mississippians, HOYO is an award-winning program of The University of Southern Mississippi Institute for Disability Studies.  HOYO seeks to empower people to reach their individual dreams of owning and maintaining their own homes.

For more information or to pre-register for the free renter education workshop, call the Jackson office of the Institute for Disability Studies toll free at 1.866.883.4474.
