Emergency Relief Assistance (ERA)
The Clayton County Board of Commissioners plan to allocate an $8.7 million grant from the Department of Treasury for Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) to help prevent evictions and offer assistance for utilities.
With the secured funds available through December 2021 from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the county may disburse payments to Landlords directly for residents/renters who qualify for relief.
Acceptance of the grant allows the Board of Commissioners to assist families with rental assistance, utilities, and case management services for stable housing. The County is in the process of developing a Request for Proposal for case management services.
