    I moved on August 8 to Ames to an apartment at Windsor Pointe & Brighton Park Apartment. What are the requirements to qualify for this payment assistance for the first month's rent? If so, what documents do I need for this help? Is it by appointment? I appreciate all the information you can give me about it.
