Get Emergency Rental Help
The federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program helps families pay rent and utilities as a result of COVID-19-related hardships. If eligible, and while funds last, you may receive up to 12 months of rent and/or utility assistance, with a possible 3-month extension if needed.
You may be eligible if you rent; and as a result of COVID-19, at least one of your family members meets at least one of the following criteria:
- Qualifies for unemployment
- Had a reduction in income
- Incurred significant costs or hardships
You also must demonstrate risk of losing your home and have income at or lower than 80% of area median income.
