Miami-Dade County to once again accept applications for rent relief from June 14th through June 25th
County residents that are behind on their rent due to COVID-19 can apply for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP 2.3) to help pay rent and other housing costs
Miami-Dade County will once again accept applications for rent relief starting Monday, June 14th through Friday, June 25th. County residents that have fallen behind on rent due to COVID-19 can apply for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP 2.3) to help pay back rent and other housing costs. All applications whether submitted on the first day or last day of this open period will be placed into a pool that will be sorted by a computerized random selection process to determine order of review.
“This is wonderful news for so many people and families in our community facing difficult choices to find the money to pay for rent and other housing needs,” said Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “Miami-Dade County is proud to continue distributing millions of dollars in relief to keep families in need in their homes and provide relief to landlords who are struggling."
Launched by Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and approved by the Board of County Commissioners, the ERAP 2.3 program has already helped nearly 1,600 families with an average award of $7,500, totaling nearly $12 million in relief since March.
A single person household earning less than $50,650 may qualify for ERAP 2.3 benefits. Two person households earning less than $57,850, three person households earning less than $65,100, and four person households earning less than $72,300 may also qualify. Eligible households can receive up to 12 months of assistance to help pay back rent and an additional 3 months of future rent if needed.
