MISSOURI EMERGENCY RENTAL ARREARS PROGRAM
NOTE: The Missouri ERAP Program closed to new applications on April 5, 2021.
The Emergency Rental Arrears Program (ERAP) application portal closed on Monday April 5, 2021, and is no longer accepting new applications.
Any ERAP application already under review or submitted prior to the deadline will be reviewed for eligibility, processed and paid based on the availability of funding. Once the ERAP application portal has closed, Landlords and Tenants will continue to have an opportunity to apply for past due and forward rent through the State Assistance for Housing Relief (SAFHR) program application portals.
The state of Missouri’s new rental assistance program using funding through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) was passed by Congress in December 2020. On February 11, 2021 Governor Parson signed HB 16 into law, which provides more than $324 million in funding for rental and utility assistance for Missourians. Missouri Housing Development Commission will administer this funding under the State Assistance for Housing Relief (SAFHR) program. Please click below for more information.
Please note that the Missouri Emergency Rental Arrears Program (ERAP) is a separate program from above, and is utilizing ESG-CV funding authorized through the CARES Act. This program is open to landlords seeking rental arrears for qualified tenants.
