Emergency Rental Assistance Program Is Ending!


RE:          Spending down of the funds awarded to our County. 

We’ve spent over 5 million dollars on rental and utility assistance.  We are now nearing the end of the program; therefore, we will change how applications are processed. Please see the procedure for processing applications below.

  • No more Hotel/Motel stays will be accepted after March 8, 2022.
  • Applications will no longer be available as of March 11, 2022.
  • Applications already in hand, will continue to be accepted, but only processed pending funding availability.
  • We will continue to process all claims that are currently at the ERAP office until we reach $900,000 remaining. At which point, we will prioritize the applications according to the preferences listed below.

Order for payment of applications with $900,000 remaining:

  1. First claim evictions
  2. First claim applications
  3. 2nd claim evictions
  4. All other files will be logged by date and time and will be processed depending on availability of funds.
  • No new applications will be issued, however, any outstanding applications, not currently at the ERAP office will be accepted, logged by date and time, and processed pending funding availability.
