As of 1/7/2022, the East Baton Rouge Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) application portal is closed to new applications. If you have already submitted an application and have not yet been contacted by a case manager, your application may still be reviewed for eligibility and funding. The existing backlog of applications for rental and utility assistance will continue to be processed until all current funding is exhausted.

If the City-Parish receives more funding and is subsequently able to re-open the EBR ERAP application portal, an announcement will be made via the media and email blast.

Though the application portal is closed to new applications, we encourage you to complete a needs assessment to help us determine the number of EBR City-Parish residents still in need of assistance.
