Behind on rent, late fees, or utilities or facing eviction?
- Living in Tribal Areas: Check if your Tribe receives Emergency Rental Assistance funds to provide rental, utility, and late fee assistance to families that are low-income, unemployed, elder, or disabled.
- Not Living in Tribal Areas: If you are not currently residing on a reservation and seeking emergency rental assistance from a city/State, you can locate a list of resources here: https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/coronavirus/assistance-for-state-local-and-tribal-governments/emergency-rental-assistance-program
Please note, however, that some Tribes are providing Emergency Rental Assistance off reservation to enrolled Tribal members, so they should also check with their Tribe for assistance. However, they should not receive duplicate assistance!

Note: Unless a longer eviction moratorium is in effect under state or local law, your Tribe, TDHE, or landlord can evict you if you have not paid your rent or entered into a repayment agreement.
Other protections may be available to you if your State, local, territorial, or Tribal authority has imposed a longer or more stringent suspension on evictions that provide the same or greater level of public-health protection than the requirements listed in the CDC Order.
