Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)


In accordance with the Homeless Services Reform Act of 2005, as amended, D.C. Official Code §4-753.08(c-1)(3), and Mayor’s Order 2006-115, dated August 30, 2006, the District of Columbia (District) Department of Human Services (DHS) Family Services Administration (FSA) gives notice that the last day to apply for Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 is July 1, 2024. DHS received 15,500 applications for FY 2024 and anticipates that ERAP funds will be exhausted after July 1, 2024.

This Notice shall remain in effect until the beginning of FY 2025 or the publication of a Notice in the District of Columbia Register indicating that additional appropriated funding has been authorized for the resumption of ERAP for the remainder of FY 2024.

If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact the DHS/FSA ERAP office at [email protected].

The ERAP portal will reopen on July 1, 2024. If you previously attempted to apply but did not submit the application, that record will be deleted from the system and you must start a new application. You will not be able to access any incomplete application. All incomplete applications will be removed from the system before July 1, 2024.

If you submitted an application in April and have not been contacted by a Provider yet, you do not need to submit a new application in July. We are currently processing applications submitted in April and your application will be processed in the order it was received.

Residents seeking emergency rental assistance can submit their application when the portal re-opens on July 1, 2024. Click here to learn more about documents needed to submit a complete application.
