Denver Emergency Rental Assistance Program to stop accepting new first-time applications
The Denver Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will stop accepting new first-time applications for assistance at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9.
Recertification applications submitted prior to Nov. 1 and first-time applications submitted by Dec. 9 will continue to be processed. From June 2021 to Sept. 2022, Brothers Redevelopment administered more than $4 million in rental assistance to 819 Denver households. The need for rental assistance remains high — but limited funding is available to continue the program.
According to the City of Denver’s Department of Housing Stability, the department is working to find ways to coordinate across Denver ERAP and Denver’s Temporary Rental and Utility Assistance Program (TRUA) to best serve residents during the transition from ERAP back to TRUA.
Denver County residents seeking access to TRUA should call Colorado Housing Connects at 1-844-926-6632 to speak to a housing navigator to determine their eligibility and start the application process.
