Emergency Rental, Mortgage and Utility Assistance Program (ERAP)

The City of Mesa's ERAP program has closed.  All funding has been expended and made a huge impact to our community.  Almost 10,000 unique unduplicated Mesa households were served to prevent eviction and possible homelessness due to the COVID pandemic.  A big thank you to the many employees and community partners that have made this program a success.  Program funds were distributed July 2020 through February 2023.

Household Eviction Prevention and Diversion Solutions

The City of Mesa has been fortunate enough to receive over $56M in direct federal funding, through the various pandemic-related acts, to help both renters and landlords with rent payment delays due to the overall impacts of the pandemic.  The rental/utility and mortgage assistance programs are focused on low-income residents that have been impacted by COVID-19.
Our goal is three-fold: 
  1. Prevent evictions to keep our residents housed;
  2. Help residents work toward stability;
  3. Ensure any/all funding in Mesa can help our community thrive during the pandemic and be well positioned toward future, long-term, and sustainable success.
