Fayette County ERAP is accepting applications for ERAP assistance for anyone who is not above 80% AMI and has not exceeded 18 months of assistance. Priority will be given to applications from households who have not received prior ERAP funding and are at or below 50% AMI or recently unemployed (90 days prior to application).
Some key things to remember when applying for ERAP are as follows:
- No future rent or late fees will be paid
- Applicant must be at or below 50% AMI OR unemployed (with verification) 90 days prior to application
- Applicants cannot have received previous ERAP payments.
- Applicants seeking utility assistance MUST apply for LIHEAP/Crisis first and provide proof via approval/denial letter
- Applications with all required documentation will be processed in the order in which they are received. Due to limited funding, no funds are guaranteed.
- Residents can begin the application process on the state’s website, www.compass.state.pa.us.
- Landlords can contact Community Action on behalf of their tenants, but those tenants must be willing to participate and currently occupy the rental unit.
- Applicants should provide an accurate email and phone number at the time of submission.
