Funded by the Sudbury Housing Trust, the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) provides temporary monthly rental assistance in the form of a grant to eligible households who have a loss of income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This program has been expanded to include tenants in subsidized housing units, as long as they are at 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or lower. Applications are currently being accepted. The application package with more information can be found at the following link:

Payments are made directly to the landlord. The ERAP will pay between $350 – $800/month depending on unit size for four months. Grant renewals may be possible depending on need and available funding.
