2021 CDBG Notice

Emergency Rental Assistance

Posted June 13, 2022

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program I or ERAP I was created to help renters dealing with financial challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For eligible households, the program offered rental and utility assistance to help Pennsylvanians avoid eviction or loss of utility service. Emergency Rental Assistance Program II or ERAP II continues similar aid after the conclusion of ERAP I. Payments from ERAP II, including arrearages and future payments, for any individual household may not exceed 18 months which is inclusive of any assistance provided using ERAP 1.


February 2023 Update
There is not a definite date for the termination of ERAP II. Because each application is limited by the 18-month benefit period and not a dollar amount, it is difficult to determine an end date. It appears that grant funds may be exhausted by late April or early May. To process all pending applications, the number of applications accepted as of February 15, 2023, will be limited. The ERAP Office will open one or two days per week to receive 50 applications on a first come, first serve basis. The staff will work full time to process these applications. The rounds of 50 applications will continue to be accepted until the grant funds are exhausted. The goal is to review all pending applications while funds are available.
