Need Help Paying Your Rent Yakamaniacs? Apply for the ERAP Grant
Figuring out how to pay all the bills, the rent, feed yourself and the kids, purchase winter clothes, and handle unexpected expenses in a pandemic with no income, SUCKS!
There is no other way to say it. If you're stressed and don't know where to turn, The Latino Community Fund says, "come here mija's and mijo's. We got you!"
From now through December 31st, 2020 The Latino Community Fund has a special project called the Eviction Rent Assistance Program (ERAP) Grant. It's part of Yakima County's response to the Covid-19 disaster.
The program is set-up to prevent evictions that would contribute to the spread of the virus by paying past due, current due, and future rent.
Did you read that? THEY WILL PAY YOUR PAST DUE, CURRENT DUE, AND FUTURE RENT. HALLELUJAH!
The stress that you have silently been carrying around can dissipate. The prayers that you have been sending up and feeling like they are going unanswered are being handled. The ERAP is also targeting limited resources to those with the greatest needs while working to distribute funds equitably.
The most beautiful part about this is it's a grant, meaning you don't have to pay it back. You aren't going to owe The Latino Community Fund, putting you in even more debt but if you qualify, I'm sure they wouldn't mind a thank you card!
So please, take a deep breath and contact Josh, to get the process started firstname.lastname@example.org. They will work hard to qualify you.
Do you need to be Latino? No, you do not, you just need to be in need.
We're in this together, remember?
