Financial assistance to Pennsylvania residents in eligible locations to cover the costs of current, past, and future rental and utility payments during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended for applicants that have been negatively impacted by the pandemic and whose primary residence is in Lackawanna County.
ERAP can assist renters in Lackawanna County (all municipalities) with past due rent and past due utility bills for the amounts incurred due after 3/13/2020. In some cases, it can also pay forward rent payments for 3 months. There is a 12-month cap on assistance, so the forward rent is not guaranteed. ERAP can pay 3 months forward rent for qualifying households even if they don’t have arrears.
GrantWatch ID#: 195937
There is currently no cap on the total amount of assistance, but it is limited to 12 months of total assistance.
