Struggling to pay past or current rent and utilities? The New Hampshire Emergency Rental Assistance Program provides assistance to eligible residents who are experiencing financial hardship during the pandemic. Find out if you qualify.
Help for Renters
The NH Emergency Rental Assistance Program (NHERAP) provides financial assistance for New Hampshire renters who cannot pay their rent and utilities during the pandemic. The program works with tenants and landlords, and is expected to be available through at least 2022. The state’s five Community Action Partnership agencies accept and process applications for assistance. Applications can be submitted at CAPNH.org.
NHERAP is a federally funded rental assistance program through the Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery (GOFERR). It is administered by New Hampshire Housing, in collaboration with GOFERR and the Community Action Partnership agencies.
This program is for renters and landlords, not homeowners. The federal Homeowner Assistance Fund Program (HAF), provides assistance to homeowners impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are a homeowner, you can learn more about the HAF Program HERE.
