Building a More Equitable City
Eviction Intervention Assistance
The City of Houston and Harris County are working together to provide an additional $13 million in eviction intervention assistance to families that are in active eviction, due to unpaid rent resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are in active eviction, visit houstonharrishelp.org to apply. The general Emergency Rental Assistance Program is no longer accepting applications.
