WHO: Community Services League (CSL) and United Way of Greater Kansas City have formed a
collaborative partnership to implement and administer Jackson County’s $11,550,205 federal
rental assistance. Funds will be used to assist eligible households that are unable to pay past due
rent and utility bills due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
WHAT: The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) provides financial assistance and housing
stability services in Eastern Jackson County to eligible rental households who demonstrate a risk
of experiencing housing instability, have seen their income reduced by the COVID-19 pandemic,
and earn a household income at or below 80% of the area median income. Rental and utility
assistance payments are made directly to the landlord or utility provider on behalf of the tenant.
WHEN: Assistance applications are now open.
WHERE: More information about the program, including eligibility requirements, an application
checklist, and more, can be found at www.jacksoncountyerap.org. Detailed program
information is also available for Spanish-speaking families at
www.jacksoncountyerap.org/espanol. Grandview Assistance Program (GAP), Raytown
Emergency Assistance Program (REAP), and Hope House, in addition to CSL’s locations, are
serving as application hubs with dedicated ERAP Case Managers.
WHY: The $11.5 million grant is part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, which
established a $25 billion Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program for state, county, and
Residents of Grandview, MO seeking emergency assistance funds for rent and/or basic utility assistance MUST submit an online application at www.jacksoncountyerap.org.
Once an application is submitted, a member of the Community Services League will assign the application to the appropriate organization representing the application's head of household's zip code. If additional documentation or information is needed to complete the application, the Grandview Assistance Program ERAP Case Manager will contact you to discuss next steps in collecting further documentation.
