Emergency Rental Assistance Alabama helped renters affected by COVID-19 to pay rent and utility bills (including past due rent and utilities). The Emergency Rental Assistance bill was passed as part of the national Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 which provided temporary funding for pandemic-response rental assistance. The Program was administered through the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
ERA Alabama provided assistance to all counties and jurisdictions within its service area. Baldwin County, Jefferson County, Madison County, Mobile County, Montgomery County, Tuscaloosa County, City of Birmingham, and the City of Huntsville received separate funding and administered their own Emergency Rental Assistance programs.
