In response to COVID-19 and its economic fallout, many cities and states are creating or expanding emergency rental assistance programs to support individuals and families impacted by the pandemic.

The Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance program has made $46.55 billion available to help renters struggling to pay rent or utilities. States (including the District of Columbia), territories, tribal governments or tribally designated housing entities, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, and local governments with more than 200,000 residents may be administering a program as part of the federal Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance program. You can use the searchable database below to find Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance programs near you.

This database is updated three times a week. Note that this list only includes programs that are part of the federal Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance program; a more extensive database of emergency rental assistance programs can be found here. If you cannot find a program in your area, call 2-1-1 or your local housing authority for assistance. If you are aware of a program not included in our database, please contact [email protected].

Please note, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) took unprecedented action by issuing a temporary national moratorium on most evictions for nonpayment of rent to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Click here for more information.
