Information

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) helps low-income District residents who face housing emergencies.  A housing emergency occurs when immediate action is needed to avoid homelessness, to re-establish a home, or to prevent eviction from a home.

 

On Monday, April 12, 2021, Mayor Bowser announced the launch of Stronger Together by Assisting You (STAY DC), a new platform to consolidate the District’s rental assistance programs during the COVID-19 public health emergency. DC renters seeking assistance with their rent or utilities due to hardships experienced during the public health emergency can apply on the new platform stay.dc.gov.
