The application process for Alabama Housing Finance Authority's "Emergency Rental Assistance Alabama" (ERA Alabama) program begins Monday, March 1 at 8 a.m. to help Alabama renters pay rent and utility bills (including past due rent and utilities).
Nationally, the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERA) is being funded exclusively through a federal grant under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021.
Separate from ERA Alabama, the Act also funds separate rental assistance programs serving residents of Baldwin, Madison, Mobile, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, and Jefferson Counties, and the cities of Huntsville and Birmingham. To allow time for local ERA programs to develop, ERA Alabama will operate in those local jurisdictions only until March 31
In order to receive financial assistance through ERA, tenants must meet all of the following:
ERA Alabama can help renters with the following costs starting as far back as March 13, 2020:
After the initial 3 months of forward assistance, you can apply for 3 additional months of assistance if funds are still available.
While applicants may be assisted for up to 15 months, ERA Alabama will not commit funds for prospective (future) rent for more than a 3-month period at a time. Applicants must reapply every 3 months and will only be assisted if funds are still available.
