Community Progress Council announces closure plans for Emergency Rental Assistance


Based on remaining funds available for ERAP in York County, Community Progress Council is announcing a phased program closure.

ERAP will close to new applications at 10 AM on August 15, 2023. At that time, the ERAP application portal will remain open to applicants who have received ERAP assistance in the past but are still in need and wish to recertify for additional rental support.

ERAP will close to ALL applications, including re-certifications, at 10 AM on September 1, 2023.

Applications completed prior to these closure dates will be reviewed and processed until the remaining funds are exhausted, which we anticipate will happen by October 31, 2023.

If you have already applied for ERAP and are seeking an update on your application, please email eraptechassist@yorkcpc.org. Updates on ERAP applications will not be given over the phone.

Community Progress Council is proud to be the trusted partner that York County can count on in times of crisis. Through ERAP, CPC has distributed more than $41 million in emergency funding since the program began in March 2021, keeping more than 8,590 families housed.

We remain committed to providing comprehensive, integrated services that can help York County families achieve longer-term economic self-sufficiency, and will continue to offer housing and financial education and counseling services alongside our other services to help families achieve their housing and self-sufficiency goals.
