Wayne County Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Even as the American economy continues its recovery from the devastating impact of the pandemic, millions of Americans still face deep rental debt and fear the loss of basic housing security. COVID-19 exacerbated an affordable housing crisis that predated the pandemic and thus has deepened the economic disparities that threaten the strength of our nation. To alleviate this crisis, the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program makes funding available to assist households that are unable to pay rent or utility bills.

Applications from the following groups will be prioritized for processing:

  • Households with income at or below 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI)
  • Households with one or more members that have been unemployed for at least the 90 days preceding the date of application submission
Please stay tuned for more information coming soon regarding this program.
