Keeping renters safe and in their homes
The DES Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) now offers rent and utility assistance to eligible Arizona renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Eligible households may receive up to $3,500 per month for both rent and utility assistance for a maximum of 18 months.
Rent and Utility Assistance: Renters and landlords in the 12 Arizona counties listed below may apply for rent and utility assistance using the online ERAP portal. To determine a renter’s eligibility for assistance, applications must be submitted by the renter AND their landlord.
Counties Served for Rental Assistance
Renters living in Maricopa, Pima, and Yuma Counties are not eligible for rental assistance through this program but may be eligible for similar programs operated by their city or county. More information about these programs can be found under “Other City and County-Operated Programs” below.
Utility-Only Assistance: Renters in ALL 15 Arizona counties interested in utility-only assistance may apply using Easy Apply in the online ERAP portal. This allows renters to apply for assistance without a joint application from their landlord.
