COVID-19 Emergency Residential Rental Assistance Program

The application portal for the NYS Emergency Rental Assistance Program opened on June 1, 2021 at 9:00am. To apply, visit the NY State ERAP webpage. ERAP provides assistance to New York City households who are behind in their rent. Eligible low- and moderate-income households can get up to 12 months of their back rent paid, three months of future rent, and other assistance. During the first 30 days of the program New York State is prioritizing households that meet certain criteria. After the first 30 days, applications for all eligible households will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as funds remain available. All assistance will be paid directly to landlords on behalf of tenants who qualify. Tenants will be notified of any amounts paid on their behalf. For more information about how to apply, and to find out if you or your tenants qualify, visit otda.ny.gov/erap. There are also community-based organizations helping New Yorkers apply across the five boroughs, listed at nyc.gov/erap.
