New research from NLIHC, the Housing Initiative at Penn (HIP), and the NYU Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy provides an initial analysis of key program-design features of the Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) programs based on a survey of 64 program administrators. Surveyed programs have adopted self-attestation and direct-to-tenant assistance at higher rates than programs in NLIHC’s Treasury ERA dashboard, which is based on readily available public information. In addition, program administrators identified staff capacity and technology as key challenges to program implementation, despite most programs’ use of the full 10% allocation for administrative costs as well as efforts to add staff and bolster technology and infrastructure.
