Mobile County, AL – Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Mobile County families are struggling to make ends meet. To assist during these hard times, Mobile County will launch the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program to aid eligible households in need of rental and utility assistance.

Mobile County has secured an award of $12.3 million from the U.S. Department of Treasury to establish the ERA program to assist households struggling financially, because of the coronavirus pandemic. The grant is part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, which established a $25 billion Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program for state, county and municipal governments.

Applications will be available March 1st through www.mobilecountyal.gov.
