Alachua County Emergency Rental Assistance Program Continues to Accept Applications

Press release from Alachua County

The Alachua County Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) is continuing to accept applications.

ERAP is a Federal Grant intended to assist households who cannot pay or are having difficulty paying rent and/or utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It can assist eligible households with the payment of late rent and/or utilities and may also assist with rent payment in advance. Payments will generally be made only to landlords/property managers and/or utility companies, not the households themselves. Alachua County is distributing over $8 million in ERAP funds. Each household is limited to a maximum of $15,000 in assistance.
