We regret to inform you that currently there are limited funds available for the 2021 Houston-Harris County Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Please continue filling out the enrollment form to participate in the program and we will process any selected tenant applications connected to your property or properties if funding becomes available. You will be given an update in the event additional funding becomes available.
The City of Houston and Harris County are working together through the Houston-Harris County Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which will provide $159 million in rent and utility assistance to families who are at risk of losing their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds will be distributed by BakerRipley and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
You will need to complete this form if you have not already enrolled in the previous program: the BakerRipley COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program.
