Emergency Rental Assistance Programs

Emergency Rental Assistance Programs

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic impacts on USA households due to the loss of employment and the inability to cover rent, many cities and states are creating or expanding rental assistance programs.

“The Emergency Rental Assistance Program will help to keep American families in their homes during this challenging time,” said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.  “Treasury is implementing this program with unparalleled speed so our state, local, and tribal partners across the country can provide assistance to families in need.”

ERAP Treasury Programs are the programs funded by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s $25 billion Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) established by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.

CARES+ Programs are the programs funded by CARES money, state and local funding sources, and philanthropic funding in response to COVID-19.
