Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

The COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act of 2020 ensures New York renters and homeowners impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic can safely remain in their homes. Applications to the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) are being accepted.

Per the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance: “Total requests for assistance exceed available federal funding for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). Due to a court order, applications for ERAP will be accepted statewide on January 11, 2022 at 10 p.m. There is currently no federal funding available to provide assistance in most areas of the State. Therefore, applications will only be reviewed and considered for funding if additional funds become available, except in the areas listed below."
