Seminole County Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program


The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Pub. L. No. 116-260) established the $25 billion Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program. The funding provided by the ERA program will assist eligible households that have difficulty making timely payments of rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Seminole County has received $14.2 million from the U.S. Department of the Treasury intended to provide rental assistance to eligible households negatively impacted due to COVID-19, and the resulting economic environment.

This County-wide program covers unincorporated areas and all municipalities and will remain open as long as funds are available.
