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.

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!

We're in this together, remember?
