Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) provides a one-time benefit to assist with one month’s rent to Miami-Dade County low and moderate income households experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To qualify, your household must:

  • Earn no more than 80% of the County Area Median Income (AMI)
  • Have a current lease signed by the landlord in Miami-Dade County
  • Not be a recipient of other rental assistance programs such as Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Public Housing, Veteran Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH), Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG).
  • Have documentation showing that COVID-19 has created a financial hardship and lowered the household income

We will contact those applicants that qualify for the rental assistance expectantly in two weeks.
