A new rent assistance program is available to assist tenants in Clark County who owe partial or full rent to their landlord in March 2020 or later. Households must also have an income equal to or less than 50% of Area Median Income ($46,050 for a family of 4). Additional screening requirements must also be met. However, citizenship documentation is not required.
Up to three months of assistance may be provided to eligible households. Assistance will be provided to eligible households until available funds are expended. Households may only be assisted one time with these funds.

The Eviction Rent Assistance Program (ERAP) Grant is intended to prevent evictions by paying past due, current due and future rent, targeting limited resources to those with the greatest needs while working to distribute funds equitably.
This project was supported by a grant awarded by U.S. Department of the Treasury. Grant funds are administered by the Local Government Coronavirus Relief Fund through the Washington State Department of Commerce.
