About the Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The Emergency Rental Assistance program makes available $25 billion to assist households that are unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The funds are provided directly to States, U.S. Territories, local governments, and Indian tribes.  Grantees use the funds to provide assistance to eligible households through existing or newly created rental assistance programs.


An “eligible household” is defined as a renter household in which at least one or more individuals meet the following criteria:

  1. Qualifies for unemployment or has experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19;
  2. Demonstrates a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability; and
  3. Has a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median.

Rental assistance provided to an eligible household should not be duplicative of any other federally funded rental assistance provided to such a household.

We have copious amounts of supportive content for renters and property managers on our website. If you are having trouble finding a rental during COVID, check out this blog post for tips.
