If you’re experiencing a financial hardship with paying your utilities due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus Pandemic) may be able to assist you through the Emergency Rent Assistance Program Extension (ERAP Extension).
The ERAP Extension is a partnership between Mecklenburg County and The Housing Partnership. ERAP Extension is open to individuals and families who are experiencing a delay in making their utility payments due to COVID-19. An ERAP Extension representative will work with you 1-on-1 to determine if you are eligible for utility assistance. If eligible, the funds will be sent directly to the utility company to cover your past due payment.
