On March 22, 2021, the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program Phase II (CVERAP Phase II) began accepting pre-applications to provide rental arrears and temporary rental assistance to low- and moderate-income households that have had a substantial reduction in income, have qualified for unemployment benefits, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Applicants seeking emergency rental assistance for arrears may be eligible for up to a maximum of twelve months of emergency rental assistance to help pay for rent arrears and future rent to the extent that funds are available.
Applicants seeking emergency rental assistance for current and future rents may be eligible for financial assistance that is limited to three months based on the application submitted, except that the household may receive additional assistance for additional months subject to the availability of remaining funds and eligibility.
Persons applying must be 18 years of age or older or an emancipated minor. Only one application per household will be accepted. Learn more about the eligibility criteria for assistance and access the COVID-19 Rental Assistance portal.
