May I use a paper application to apply for assistance?
Applications should be initiated and completed through the ERAP portal at https://era.azdes.gov/ for all programs. This is the best and quickest way to receive assistance. All communications are sent via email, and you can track your application status through this portal.
If you are unable to sign up through ID.me, you can use a paper application to apply for rental and/or utility assistance. You must still provide a valid photo identification as well as the documents requested on each application version.
The links below will take you to the corresponding application in the document center which you can download and fax or fill out online and print then fax to the number listed at the top of each application. You will find applications for the Emergency Rental Assistance, Statewide Utility Assistance, and Low Income Household Water Assistance Programs here, as well as applications for recertification.
