EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) assists eligible Seminole Nation tribal households and
other tribal households that are unable to pay rent and utilities (electric, water, gas, propane, sewer, trash
removal) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ERAP can assist eligible households with rental arrearages, utility
arrearages, current rental payments and current utility payments. Telecommunication services (telephone, cable,
Internet) delivered to the rental dwelling ARE NOT considered to be utilities. This program is only available to
rental households and does not apply to households with a mortgage or who currently own their home.
This program is limited to one tribal member per household.
Payments will be made directly to the landlord or utility company.
