Alabama Emergency Rental Assistance Programs

Alabama ERAP Treasury Programs:

On February 12, 2021, Governor Kay Ivey authorized AHFA to implement the State’s new COVID-19 emergency rental assistance program. Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Alabama is funded entirely by a $263 million congressional grant under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (the “Act”). Issuing a declaration of public emergency, AHFA is presently developing a program for processing online applications statewide, by landlords and renters. The online and phone system opens for applications from landlords and tenants on March 1, 2021 at 8 a.m. Central Time.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Mobile County families are struggling to make ends meet. To assist during these hard times, Mobile County will launch the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program to aid eligible households in need of rental and utility assistance.

Alabama CARES+ Programs:

The JCCEO CSBG Rental Assistance Program is designed to meet the emergency needs of households confronted with a financial crisis due to sudden unemployment, illness of a primary wage-earner, or natural disasters such as Covid-19. This program provides one-time financial assistance to qualifying households to cover such basic expenses as rent, water, or the purchase of prescription medication.
