U.S. Treasury
Even as the American economy continues its recovery from the devastating impact of the
pandemic, millions of Americans face deep rental debt and fear evictions and the loss of
basic housing security. To meet this need, the U.S. Treasury’s Emergency Rental
Assistance (ERA) program makes funding available to assist households that are unable
to pay rent or utilities. The funds are provided directly to grantees such as states, U.S.
territories, local governments, and (in the case of the first round of funding) Indian tribes.
Grantees use the funds to provide assistance to eligible households through existing or
newly created rental assistance programs. To learn more about how to apply for
emergency rental assistance in your state, please visit this link. Information in Spanish for renters can be found here, and information in Spanish for landlords can be found here.
