Background and Discussion:
The County previously received installments totaling $28,570,165.60 under the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA2) program. The purpose of this item is to request Court acceptance of the County's remaining allocation of $42,855,248.40, which would bring the grant total received to $71,425,414. The County will act as an intermediary to administer and direct the allocation of these funds to eligible households unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no match requirement.

Expected Impact:

These funds will support efforts to provide assistance to County residents for prevention of eviction due to COVID-related non-payment of rent and utilities.


Alternative Options:
Not offer the relief, or utilize other COVID funds available to the County.
