Emergency Rental Assistance

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) run by Action Housing will stop accepting new applications on March 31st! If you know someone that needs help, make sure they go online to complete the application ASAP and contact us if they have any trouble.

 

ERAP covers both rent and utilities that are past due from the date of the original COVID shutdown last March. You must make less than 80% of area median income, and prove that you either lost income due to COVID or saw an increase in your expenses. There is no separate application process for residents of the county--it is for everyone in Allegheny County. Apply for the program at

  2. neighborhood programs that provide residents with opportunities for enriched cultural experiences, and

  3. assist local community groups in distributing needed resources such as food, school supplies, and diapers.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, this fund has been diverted entirely to support emergency relief efforts and provides up to $1,000 of rental, mortgage, utility, and property tax assistance as well as $200 for basic needs assistance.
