Based on remaining funds available for emergency rental assistance in York County, ERAP is closed to all applications as of September 1, 2023.

Applications completed prior to the program close will be reviewed and processed until the remaining funds are exhausted. As of October 31, 2023, ERAP funds remain and we continue to review and process applications completed prior to the program closure.

If you have already applied for ERAP and are seeking an update on your application, please email eraptechassist@yorkcpc.org or call Community Progress Council at 717-846-4600.

Walk-in inquiries will not be accepted.

HOW WILL A LANDLORD KNOW THEIR TENANT HAS APPLIED?

In the tenant’s portion of the application, there is a place to add a “recommender”. This is where the landlord information should be submitted. Once the tenant submits the application, the landlord will automatically be sent an email stating which tenant is applying and instructions for the landlord to complete their portion of the application.

WHAT DOCUMENTATION DOES THE APPLICANT NEED TO PROVIDE?

The tenant will need to provide a Photo ID, Proof of Residency, and court eviction documentation. A landlord will need to provide the lease, rental delinquency verification, W-9, proof of ownership of the rental property, and ACH form for direct deposit.

HOW WILL A LANDLORD OR TENANT FIND OUT THE STATUS OF THE APPLICATION?

The tenant or the landlord can email eraptechassist@yorkcpc.org at any time or call Community Progress Council at 717-846-4600 during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday) to check the status of an application.

WHAT IS A COLLABORATOR?

A collaborator is someone that can assist the tenant in their portion of the application. They should not complete the application for the tenant. The collaborator will have access to edit or view the application and can help the applicant check the status of the application. The applicant must fill the collaborator information out first before starting the application as they will not be able to return to that section without erasing their application.
