The DC area distributed nearly 60 percent of Emergency Rental Assistance funds—more than $649 million—to renters struggling to pay rent ahead of the September 30 federal deadline. Originally, states and localities were required to distribute 65 percent of emergency funds before the deadline or they would risk having to return the money. DC and Virginia distributed 73 percent and 67 percent of funds, while Maryland only spent 28 percent. New guidance will ask states and localities that failed to meet the deadline to submit an improvement plan to the Department of the Treasury.
