Emergency Rental Assistance 

The Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program includes an unprecedented amount of funding for emergency rental assistance to help renters stay stably housed. The December 2020 COVID-19 relief package included $25 billion in urgently needed emergency rental assistance for tenants with low incomes and established the Emergency Rental Assistance program (ERA) under the administration of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The “American Rescue Plan Act,” enacted in March 2021, provided an additional $21.55 billion for ERA for a grand total of $46.55 billion in emergency rental assistance. States (including the District of Columbia), territories, tribal governments or tribally designated housing entities, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, and local governments with more than 200,000 residents may be administering local programs as part of the federal Treasury ERA program.
