Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 created the Emergency Rental Assistance Program and makes available $25 billion provided directly to States, U.S. Territories, local governments, and Indian Tribes. This program is utilized to administer assistance to renters, landlords and utility providers that have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic and economic insecurity.
