COVID-Related Assistance Update

The portal for COVID-related assistance applications (ERA Program), including rent, utilities and relocation is now closed. The portal will RE-OPEN on April 3, 2023.

Please be advised that the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will close in the next few months due to limited funding. The assistance amount for each household is approved based on the crisis and maximum benefits are capped at $25,000 or 18 months (whichever comes first). We highly encourage you to take advantage of other available services geared towards economic self-sufficiency, such as budget counseling and vocational training. Your assigned Case Manager can connect you with employment and self-sufficiency opportunities.

LIHEAP and LIHWAP portal for electric and water services remains open for utility assistance and HVAC system replacement (for homeowners).
