Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Application Portal is Open​​


In May 2022, the Broward County Commission received an additional $22 million in funding from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), in an initiative that enables local governments to allocate emergency funding to residents who are suffering financially ​during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are behind on your rent or utilities, or unable to pay your current rent, the ERAP can help. Also, if your rent has increased and this increase will cause a hardship, we can now provide three months of rental assistance.​
