EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSITANCE PROGRAM
They say most of us are only one or two paychecks away from poor housing situations. The MRDC ERAP team is meant to help those who are currently experiencing and fearful they may be facing homelessness due to an upcoming eviction. Out team works with federal, state and county governments along with private foundations and other organizations to obtain resources and expand community capacity. In addition to providing limited direct assistance, the unit also partners with other organizations in the community to support people as they move closer to self-sustainability.
