If you applied for ERAP before the portal closed on November 14, 2021, please submit proof of your ERAP application with your HRA application for rental assistance in accordance with State requirements.
If you are at risk of eviction, you may be eligible for free legal assistance through HRA’s Office of Civil Justice.
