Emergency Rental Assistance Program
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub. L. No. 116-260) established the $25 billion Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program. The funding provided by the ERA program will assist eligible households that have difficulty making timely payments of rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Seminole County has received $14.2 million from the U.S. Department of the Treasury intended to provide rental assistance to eligible households negatively impacted due to COVID-19, and the resulting economic environment. Funds shall be used to cover the financial obligation of rent and/or utilities. This County-wide program covers unincorporated areas and all municipalities. The first 3,000 completed applications will be accepted.
This funding is specifically provided for low income Seminole County renters who are in danger of eviction or precariously housed as a result of financial hardship caused by COVID-19.START NOW >
