If your community has or is developing a locally funded Emergency Rental Assistance Program in response to the COVID-19 health emergency, please take some time to fill out this survey about your program. We understand that your program may not yet be formally approved or operating, but we want to know about it!
This survey is intended to assist state, regional and local governments and non-profit agencies in Massachusetts better coordinate local Emergency Rental Assistance Programs (ERAPs) being developed in response to the COVID-19 health emergency in Massachusetts. Please fill out and submit these answers to the best of your ability. We understand that the ERAP you develop in your community may be evolving, please provide the best estimate of program details. The survey also covers existing Rental Assistance Programs. Massachusetts Housing Partnership, CHAPA, and DHCD will publish the results at the earliest opportunity.
This is a joint effort of the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP) and Citizens Housing and Planning Association (CHAPA). Mass.gov, CHAPA, and MHP websites have extensive resources about housing in the time of COVID-19.
The survey is open until May 26, 2020. If you have questions about the survey, please email Chris Kluchman.
