Miami-Dade County Announces Additional Funds for Rental Assistance
Miami-Dade County (MDC) Emergency Rental Assistance Program 2.4 (ERAP 2.4) will now accept applications from MDC residents that are unable to pay an increase in rent. ERAP can help pay the difference between your current rent and the new rent for a period of 3 future months.

To qualify for assistance due to rent increase, ERAP requires that:

Household income must be below 80 percent of AMI for the MDC, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Individuals making less than $50,650, couples making less than $57,850, families of three earning less than $65,100, or families of four earning less than $72,300 qualify.
Provide a valid notice of rent increase from your landlord.
All other ERAP requirements must be met.

The State of Florida also has a rental and utility assistance program. Apply Online!

For any questions, please email ERAP@miamidade.gov or call 305-723-1815.

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program 2.4 (ERAP 2.4) provides emergency rental assistance, and possible utility and other housing stabilization assistance to Miami-Dade County households experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

We anticipate the need for assistance will be greater than the funds available. Because of this, we have developed an application process that will ensure that all applications will be treated fairly. If you have picked-up and completed a paper application, you must drop off the completed application at one of two (2) site locations that are identified in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Applications can be picked up from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, starting on October 1, 2021 except holidays.

There is also an on-line application process. It is highly recommended that applicants apply on-line rather than use this paper application. Possible problems with paper applications include the application getting lost, or the applicant being disqualified due to handwriting that cannot be read. The on-line process will begin at 9:00 a.m. on October 1, 2021 .

Applications will be reviewed on a first come, first serve basis.
