The Two River Times
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused financial hardship for many vulnerable residents. Now Monmouth County has announced that, with the support of local community-based nonprofits, millions in federal funding has been leveraged to help those struggling remain in their homes.
Last year the county distributed a little over $13.3 million to 1,362 households impacted by COVID-19 from the $18.4 million in federal emergency rental assistance (ERA1) received from the U.S Treasury Department’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). This first round of funding covers the period between May 13 and
Nov. 30, 2021.
The county announced Dec. 30 that additional ERA2 and ERA2-High Need funding allocations would be distributed in 2022.
