County Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will begin taking
applications this Monday at 12 p.m. (noon).
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.
