Emergency Rental Assistance Program for Renters, Property Owners and Landlords



The COVID-19 St. Louis Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will provide back rent and temporary rental and utilities assistance to low- and moderate-income households. St Louis County has been awarded $29.7 million of federal funding to distribute. 

Apply for the program on the St. Louis County Department of Human Services (DHS) online portal with the required information shown on the Renter Flyer. DHS will notify you when your application is received and after it has been reviewed.

Enrollment opens Monday, April 5, 2021, 8 AM and will be open 24 hours a day until enough applications have been received to ensure distribution of all funds.




Your tenants may be eligible for up to 12 months of emergency rental assistance to help pay for past rent owed and future rent. If tenants have already received ERAP funding, need additional rent support, and have not yet received the maximum 12 months of emergency rental assistance, they can apply for additional funding; income and COVID-19 impact will be recertified at minimum every three months.

Once assistance is approved and you, as the property owner, provide the required documents, St. Louis County will make payments directly to you. For more information, please visit the St. Louis County Department of Human Services (DHS) online portal. More information can also be found on the Landlord Flyer.
