Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Emergency rental assistance program (ERAP)

Applications opened June 1st. Approved households may receive:

  • Up to 12 months of rental arrears payments for rents accrued on or after March 13, 2020.
  • Up to 3 months of additional rental assistance if the household is expected to spend 30 percent or more of their gross monthly income to pay for rent.

Both Landlords and Tenants can apply here!

Eviction Moratorium Extension

Eviction Moratorium Extended Through August 31st

The eviction protections under the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act were extended through August 31st, 2021. The bill was set to expire on May 1st, 2021, so this extension works retroactively to cover the days between then and today. 

This extension means that most tenants can protect themselves from eviction if they sign a Hardship Declaration and deliver it to their landlord, an agent of their landlord and/or their local Housing Court. PLEASE fill out a Hardship Declaration as soon as possible! This can protect you from evictions!
