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:
- Prevent evictions to keep our residents housed;
- Help residents work toward stability;
- 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.
Below are statistics and information from prior funding waves about the funding investment process and outcomes. For more data visit the full ERAP dashboard.
