Emergency Rental Assistant Program
The widespread economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected both individuals and families who have fallen behind on rent, as well as landlords who rely on rental income to meet their own expenses. As federal and state eviction moratoria expire, millions of American households could face displacement from their homes in the coming months.
Through funding from the Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program, there are a wide variety of state, territorial, tribal, and local government programs that have been tailored to address the special needs of communities during these difficult times.
To assist in this effort and ensure that debtors are informed about relief that may be available to them, the USTP has prepared this Informational Notice (Notice) on ERA programs. The Notice provides an overview of ERA, along with links to learn about available options by state (and, in some cases, county), get answers to frequently asked questions, or find a HUD‑approved housing counselor, among other things.
