Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

UPDATE: Due to projected funding constraints resulting from the number of applications we have received for ERAP assistance, Butler County has implemented a prioritization policy, including a revised assistance plan as of 2/1/2023. Applications received on or after 2/1/2023 will be limited in the number of months of prospective assistance that will be provided, as follows:

  • Qualified applicants who have an income of 50% and below AMI will be eligible to receive up to 6 months of prospective rental assistance and up to 3 months of prospective utility assistance and/or other expenses related to housing. 
  • Qualified applicants who have an income of 51% to 80% AMI will be eligible to receive up to 3 months of prospective rental assistance and up to 3 months of prospective utility assistance and/or other expenses related to housing.  
  • Arrearages for all qualified applicants can still be paid for up to 18 months, but it is important to note that no applicant can receive more than a total of 18 months of assistance, including arrearages and prospective payments.
