Welcome to the Hays County Emergency Rental Application Program!

Due to the high demand and limited grant funds, the Hays County Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program is closed to new applications as of May 19, 2022 and applications are not being accepted at this time. Please check back for program updates.

Hays County ERA is reviewing and processing the applications already on file, prioritizing those in eviction proceedings until all remaining funds are allocated

All applications pending before May 19, 2022 will continue to be processed for Hays County households with an emergency need for assistance with rental arrears related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All awards are subject to the availability of funds. A request for assistance does not guarantee payment of the amount requested and the right to amend or adjust the request for assistance based upon available funding is expressly reserved.
