This purpose of this program is to assist eligible tribal households that are unable to pay rent and utilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) assists eligible tribal households that are unable to pay rent and utilities (electric, water, gas, propane, sewer, trash removal) due to COVID-19 pandemic. ERAP can assist eligible households with rental arrearages, utility arrearages, current rental payments, and current utility payments. Telecommunication services (telephone, cable, internet) delivered to the rental dwelling are not considered to be utilities. This program is only available to rental households and does not apply to households with a mortgage or who currently own their home. This program is limited to one tribal member per household. Payments will be made directly to the landlord or utility company. Income limitations apply. Please see application for more information.
Modoc Housing Authority has a limited supply of Frigidaire Window Unit Air Conditioners with
supplemental Heat that is being offered to tribal members. They require a 220 VOLT electrical
outlet and must be picked up at the housing office. If you need assistance with an electrician, MHA will be happy to help coordinate that but will not pay for the service. The windows units are
available to all tribal members with a preference for families especially those in need. If you are
in need, please send a short essay describing such need. If you are interested in a window unit,
please fill out and return the application.
Applications can be picked up at the Modoc Housing Authority, the BIA in Miami at 34 A St NE,
or online by following the link above.
