The United States Trustee Program (USTP) is disseminating information about Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) programs that may be available to debtors in bankruptcy. According to the Director of the USTP, Congress has appropriated more than $46 billion in ERA funding and most of these appropriated funds remain available for use - primarily because eligible renters and landlords simply are not aware of them. The USTP has developed a one-page Emergency Rental Assistance Informational Notice, which provides an overview of ERA programs. The notice is available here.
