Emergency Rental Assistance No Longer Available

The Nebraska Emergency Rental Assistance Program closed on Friday, September 30, 2022. This means that the Program is not accepting any new applications. It also means that the Program cannot accept modifications to existing applications, to include the consideration of additional documentation. Any application under appeal that was not approved on or before September 30 is considered denied. Some previously submitted applications may have payments still processing. It is anticipated that all approved final payments will be sent by Friday, October 7, 2022.   

Additionally, the U.S. Treasury Department released Emergency Rental Assistance Program Closeout Guidelines on Thursday, September 13, 2022, which stated that payment of future months’ rent beyond September 30, 2022, is no longer allowed for the ERA 1 program. Therefore, the Nebraska Emergency Rental Assistance Program is not allowed to fund requests for assistance for the months of October, November, and December 2022.  

For any questions you may have, please call the Contact Center at (833) 500-8810 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM CT, Monday through Friday. This line will remain open through Friday, October 14, 2022.
