Allegheny County’s emergency rental assistance program ends Sunday

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Today is the last day of the Emergency Rental Assistance Program in Allegheny County.

The county stopped accepting applications a few months ago, but today anyone who is already in the program but is having problems should get the paperwork.

The “ERAP” money was funded from the COVID-19 relief money and was designed to help people who have been economically affected by the pandemic.

The program paid out nearly $118 million in rent and utility assistance to more than 17,000 families.

Allegheny County said it will send out notices to people involved in mediation or the eviction process — and all outstanding paperwork must be turned in by the end of Sunday afternoon.

Any undelivered documents submitted thereafter will be rejected.

Now, if you are still trying to get documents at the last second, you can refer to Action of housing and communal services for help and there is too Allegheny County Rent Guide Online.

Those who may need help even after the deadline are encouraged to contact us Allegheny Link for assistance.
