Eviction Rental Assistance Program (ERAP 2.0)

ERAP 2.0 is part of Washington State’s response to the COVID-19 disaster, intended to prevent evictions that would contribute to the spread of the virus by paying past due, current due, and future rent and utilities, targeting limited resources to those who have experienced financial hardship during or due, directly or indirectly, to the COVID-19 outbreak and are at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability.

The program goals are to prevent evictions, target resources to very low-income households who are unemployed, and promote equity in those who are served. Landlords are welcome to initiate the ERAP 2.0 application on behalf of their tenants. The grant period is currently expected to last through September 2023.
