3/16/2021 - The Emergency Rental Assistance Program
The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERA) is a fund authorized by the U.S. Department of Treasury Emergency approved by the Board of County Commissioners on March 9, 2021 to provide Palm Beach County residents with rental and utility assistance who are affected, directly or indirectly, by COVID-19 who are at risk of being homeless.

The ERA funds are newly issued and have rigorous eligibility requirements, necessitating a thorough documentation and screening process.

This program is for rental and utility assistance for renters only. Resources for home owners financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic are not covered with this funding.
