The Emergency Rental Assistance program makes available funds to assist households that are unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds are provided directly to State, 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. We will start accepting applications on April 1, 2021. Applications are available on the website or can be mailed to you by calling 918-542-1430.
