What is ERAP?

The New York State Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will provide significant economic relief to help low and moderate-income households at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability by providing rental arrears, temporary rental assistance and utility arrears assistance.



As a Landlord/owner you have 2 options to associate a tenant's application with your landlord/owner account:

1.   Associate an application submitted by a tenant with a landlord/owner account

by entering the application number and tenant's date of birth

2.   While logged into landlord/owner account, submit a new application. This

method will automatically associate the application with the landlord/owner account

As a landlord, you may submit an application on behalf of your Tenant; however, you should consult closely with the Tenant to make sure information is captured properly and with the Tenant's consent. 

The tenant must agree to the application consent language and sign the application.
