Pinellas County expands rental assistance program

September 8, 2021 - Pinellas County residents who are struggling to pay their monthly rent and were not previously eligible for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program may now have access to financial help. In a press release Tuesday, the county announced renters can apply for financial assistance if they have experienced a significant reduction in income since March 13, 2020. The hardship is no longer required to be a direct result of Covid-19. Program application and policies have also been streamlined, and priority will be given to applicants who are facing an active eviction in court. The program can now provide up to 18 months of financial support, and applications that were previously denied may now qualify. Visit pinellas.gov/erap for more information.
