Dec 15: DCA Deadline for Rental Assistance

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) earlier this week announced that the second Phase of the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program (CVERAP) and Eviction Protection Program application period will be closing on December 15, 2021.

The CVERAP program, which has been a statewide effort to help keep people housed during the pandemic, was initiated in 2019 to offer relief to low- and moderate-income households that are unable to pay rent due to COVID-19. The programs are administered by DCA’s Division of Housing and Community Resources and have thus far distributed more than $421 million in federal Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) funds to 47,329 New Jersey households.

Applications will remain open for the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance and Eviction Prevention Program (EPP) through December 15, 2021. People can visit njdca.onlinepha.com to apply for both of these programs. Applications can be submitted online with the use of a personal computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. The application is available in ten languages.
