Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Dashboard

The December 2020 COVID-19 relief package included $25 billion in urgently needed emergency rental assistance for tenants with low incomes and established the Emergency Rental Assistance program (ERA) under the administration of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The American Rescue Plan Act enacted in March 2021, provides an additional $21.55 billion for ERA for a grand total of $46.55 billion in emergency rental assistance.

The Treasury ERA program includes an unprecedented amount of funding for emergency rental assistance to help renters stay stably housed. This dashboard shares information about programs and key design and implementation features that enable them to serve the lowest-income and most marginalized renters in need of housing assistance. The latest Treasury guidance strongly encourages flexible program design so that grantees may extend this emergency assistance to vulnerable populations without imposing undue documentation burdens. The dashboard also reports on spending progress for the $46.55 billion available for emergency rental assistance. NLIHC will continue to monitor program trends and spending rates.
