Alachua County Emergency Rental Assistance Program Continues to Accept Applications
April 9, 2021
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.
