NLIHC has been closely tracking Treasury Department Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) programs since programs began in February 2021. Between April and September 1, some administrators have made changes to their programs, including adopting self-attestation and direct-to-tenant payments. Despite improvements in some programs, many programs have not yet adopted these important strategies. As of September 1, NLIHC has identified 495 rental assistance programs funded through the $25 billion appropriated for the Treasury Emergency Rental Assistance program under the December 2020 Consolidated Appropriations Act (ERA1). Though most ERA1 programs have been open for months, administrators continue to make modifications to adhere to federal guidance and adopt allowable flexibilities to improve program implementation.
