The Emergency Rental Assistance Program can pay for rent and some utilities owed back to March 13, 2020. The program will also cover up to three months of upcoming rent and utilities. Utilities include electricity, water, sewer, trash, and heat. The
program can also cover late fees for rent as long as the late fees are legal and
included in your lease. The program can also cover expenses such as internet or
relocation and other moving expenses. You may apply for help with paying for
utilities even if you do not need help paying for rent.
