The American Rescue Plan Act, enacted on March 11, 2021, provided $21.6 billion for an additional round of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which was established in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The funding is for state, county and municipal governments with populations of over 200,000 residents to assist families struggling to make rental and utility payments. Counties with populations below 200,000 residents may receive an allocation from their state.
The Treasury Department, which is responsible for overseeing and administering the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, has distributed the entire $25 billion provided for the first round of the program and has released FAQs on implementation of the program at the local level.
The Treasury Department has now released allocations for the second round of funding. Please see below for a searchable table that contains allocations for eligible county government rental assistance payments for this second round of funding. According to the legislation, grantees will recieve no less than 40 percent of their allocation within 60 days of enactment.
