HARRISBURG – The PA Department of Human Services joined officials from Gov. Tom Wolf’s Latino and Asian Pacific American Affairs Commissions to share information on the Emergency Rental Assistance Program or ERAP. All Pennsylvanians at risk of eviction or utility shutoffs because of COVID-19 are encouraged to apply for assistance as ERAP can help people facing eviction pay past due and upcoming rent or pay utility bills or other costs necessary to help them be safely housed. Tenants can apply for assistance directly, and landlords can apply for the assistance on behalf
of eligible tenants. Pennsylvanians can learn how to apply in their county of residence online at dhs.pa.gov/ERAP. All county ERAP agencies have the ability to provide language services to anyone with limited English proficiency.
