COVID-19 Emergency Rent Assistance Program (ERAP)

Historic Parkrose is partnering with the Portland Housing Bureau and Home Forward to provide rent assistance.

The COVID-19 Emergency Rent Assistance Program provides rent assistance to prevent households from experiencing evictions and homelessness due to the financial and health impacts of COVID-19. The priority is to serve communities experiencing the greatest adverse impacts from COVID-19, including Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) and households with very low incomes. ERAP-1 funds can serve households who are in rental housing or unhoused, and can pay for the following eligible expenses: current or future rent payments (future payments limited to 3 months), rent arrears, security deposits, and fees. Funds are not eligible to pay for mortgage payments, utilities, or direct cash assistance.
