The Arizona Department of Economic Security’s (DES) Emergency Rental Assistance Program is available in the following twelve counties: Apache, Cochise, Coconino, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, La Paz, Navajo, Santa Cruz, Pinal, Mohave and Yavapai. Renters and landlords in those counties can apply for assistance through the DES online portal at: era.azdes.gov. For information about the program’s eligibility requirements and how to apply, visit: des.az.gov/ERAP
Several large counties and cities, including Maricopa County, Pima County and Yuma County, received funding directly from the federal government and have launched their own local rental assistance programs, which are separate from the DES program.
