The NH Emergency Rental Assistance Program provides financial assistance for New Hampshire renters who cannot pay their rent and utilities during the pandemic. The program works with tenants and landlords, and is expected to be available through at least 2022. The state’s five Community Action Partnership agencies accept and process applications for assistance. Applications can be submitted at CAPNH.org. Click here for program details.

NHERAP & HAF
This program is for renters and landlords, not homeowners. The federal Homeowner Assistance Fund Program (HAF) will provide assistance to homeowners during the COVID-19 pandemic, and is expected to launch in January 2022. If you are at risk of foreclosure or are having difficulty paying your home mortgage, utilities, home insurance or property taxes, please call 2-1-1. This is a free service offered by Granite United Way and they will help identify resources available for you, which could include a referral for free housing counseling services.
The NHERAP is a federally funded rental assistance program through the Governor’s Office for Emergency Relief and Recovery (GOFERR). It is administered by New Hampshire Housing, in collaboration with GOFERR and the Community Action Partnership agencies.
