An update on the Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) Program from the Guam Department of Administration. The ERA Program will launch Cycle 3 which will include coverage of internet costs for qualifying households. Internet connectivity is a vital service that allows renters and their families to engage in distance learning, telework, telemedicine, and obtain essential government services. Other services offered in ERA’s Cycle 3 will be utility rapid payment with utility providers, application online webforms and submission, and expansion with outreach/marketing efforts to include on-site application submission. These additional services and financial support are aligned with the recently updated guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
