Klamath Tribes Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Klamath Tribes Emergency Rental Assistance Program

Good Morning,

Attached is a flyer for the Emergency Rental Assistance program. This is a program available to anyone throughout the United States and the world to help assist with Rental Assistance and Utilities payment. The program is income based and available to Tribal and Non-Tribal applicants.

The Emergency Rental Assistance Program was established by the Consolidated Appropriations, 2021 statute.  It is a general program, available to any tenant who meets the criteria. There was a Tribal carve out in the statute, allocating a certain portion of the funding (5%) to Tribes to provide rental assistance. That carve out provision did not limit the Tribes to providing such services only to its members or to Indian families more generally. In fact, the financial assistance form that Treasury requires Tribes to sign when they receive the funds states that we will not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity, national origin, etc.

Here is the link to access the fillable application online.  

Onsite workshops have been scheduled to provide assistance with the completion of applications for the following dates, times, and locations.  If you are able, please schedule an appointment for one of the identified locations or you can just attend and technical assistance will be provided.  Also attached is a checklist of what supporting documentation is needed for submittal of the application.
