Leverage Your ERAP Funds

Get rental assistance out quickly to constituents who need it most.

Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)


Many agencies that come into ERAP funds struggle to build an end-to-end application process, from prescreening to funds distribution, that complies with the legislation in short time. As a result, funds oftentimes go undistributed.  


  • Implement quickly and leverage existing infrastructure 
  • Comply with the 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act and 2021 American Rescue Plan Act  
  • Provide a simple, expedient, and consistent citizen experience, whether applications are submitted online, via phone, or in person 
  • Leverage prebuilt calculators that determine the amount and duration of assistance approved, according to federal government regulations
