The City of Houston and Harris County have provided more than $290 million in rental assistance to 73,000+ households impacted by COVID-19 since the program launched in February 2021. The funds have been distributed by three agencies with established experience in helping people in need: BakerRipley, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, and The Alliance.
The Houston-Harris County Emergency Rental Assistance program can only accept applications for renters with a written notice to vacate or active eviction cases due to nonpayment of rent. If you have received written notification from your landlord to vacate the property, or are currently in eviction court and have a case or cause number, you can find details on program eligibility, documentation requirements, and submit a new application here. You cannot update an existing application.
Landlords interested in registering their property will need to enroll their property and agree to the terms of the program.
Applications selected to be processed before December 31, 2021 will continue to be processed.
