Collin County is eligible for direct federal funding from the new Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), included in the latest COVID-19 relief package from Congress.
On Dec. 6, the U.S. Treasury Department announced the new $25 billion emergency rental assistance program authorized under the year-end COVID-19 relief and omnibus spending package.
Collin County has received $17,440,494.80 of these funds. Plano and Frisco received funds directly from the U.S. Treasury Department as well. Collin County has signed interlocal agreements with Allen and McKinney to provide those cities funding to run similar programs. If you are unsure of which program to apply for based on your rental address, go here.
