Yuma County – Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE WITH PAYING RENT AND UTILITIES.

Families who the COVID-19 epidemic has either directly or indirectly impacted can receive assistance through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program in Yuma County. Renters whose lives have been upended by the epidemic are eligible for assistance with their monthly rent and utility bills of up to $3,500 for a period of up to eighteen (18) months. The initiative hopes to prevent people from being evicted from their homes by providing financial assistance with rent and utilities. It is not necessary to be behind on your payments in order to receive assistance. Any assistance requested for overdue rent or utility bills will be granted before any further assistance is provided.

The following types of assistance are available:

Rent that was past due, rent that was due in the future, late fees, deposits, and utility bills were all outstanding.

Who is qualified to apply?

All applicants must demonstrate that they have been economically damaged in some way, either directly or indirectly, as a result of the epidemic.

Your income must be at or below 80 percent of the median income in the region, or it must be equal to that amount.
During the same time span, no other organization has made an offer of assistance. There must be a rental lease agreement in place.

What is the procedure for submitting my application?
