On December 27, 2020, the $900 billion COVID-19 relief stimulus bill became law. Funds will be delivered to eligible states, cities and counties as grants through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP).

Since it’s built with Unqork’s enterprise no-code platform, the application can be rapidly tailored to meet local requirements —all without writing a single line of code.

About the ERAP

ERAP provides funds directly to states (including the District of Columbia), U.S. Territories, local governments with more than 200,000 residents, the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, and Indian tribes or the tribally designated housing entity of an Indian tribe. These eligible grantees must use the funds to provide assistance to eligible households through existing or newly created rental assistance programs.

At least 90% of the rental relief can be used for: (1) future rent and utility payments, (2) back rent owed or utility bills not been paid since the beginning of the pandemic, (3) other expenses related to housing incurred directly or indirectly due to the pandemic. The remaining 10% of funds may be used for housing stability services and administrative costs, including case management or other services related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additional details regarding the ERAP can be found here.
