Treasury Releases Resources to Help State and Local Governments Speed ERA Distribution and Prevent Evictions

The U.S. Department of the Treasury on August 4 reiterated its call for state and local governments to speed the distribution of emergency rental assistance (ERA) by removing unnecessary and burdensome documentation requirements. To help communities swiftly improve their ERA programs, Treasury updated its list of promising ERA practices by publishing examples of simplified eligibility forms and an eviction-diversion “maturity model,” as recommended by NLIHC. Treasury announced it is distributing the sample eligibility forms to all ERA program grantees, hosting information sessions, and providing technical support to encourage programs to utilize self-attestation when determining an applicant’s eligibility.
