The federal government is conducting an all-out push to make sure tenants and landlords take advantage of the historic funding for emergency rental assistance to help cover rent, utilities, and other housing costs and keep people in their homes.
They are putting out this call-to-action to government agencies, companies, advocates, nonprofits, the faith community, and more to make sure that renters and landlords are able to take advantage of the relief available to them. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) ERA Call-To-Action Toolkit provides stakeholders with information about how to raise awareness about these rental assistance resources. CFPB has also launched a new look-up tool (consumerfinance.gov/renthelp) that allows renters and landlords to find information on rental assistance in their area.
Connecticut’s emergency rental assistance program, UniteCT, provides up to $15,000 rental and up to $1,500 electricity payment assistance on behalf of CT households financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
