CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The last day to submit extension requests for Wyoming’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program is Friday, June 30 at 11:59 p.m.

The application portal is closing because the federal funding for the program is nearly exhausted, according to an ERAP news release.

ERAP will continue processing all extension requests received before the application portal’s closure. No payments will be made to cover rent, utilities and housing stability services for the months after June.

If households have questions about their extension application status, please contact the ERAP call center, which is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. The toll-free number is 1-877-WYO-ERAP (1-877-996-3727).

Congress created this temporary federal relief program to provide emergency funds for state and local governments to keep their residents housed during the difficult COVID-19 pandemic. Wyoming launched its emergency relief program in April 2021 and has helped a total of 17,143 Wyoming households with a total of $107 million in assistance and counting, according to the release.
