New Mexico Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

The New Mexico Emergency Rental Assistance Program has officially closed as of June 30, 2023. Assistance for homeowners may still be available through the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority

Renters OUTSIDE the City of Albuquerque but still in the unincorporated portions of Bernalillo County still may be eligible to receive rent and utility support. This program is administered separately by Bernalillo County. They cannot help people who live within the actual City of Albuquerque limits.

*This project is supported, in whole or in part, by CFDA number 21.023 awarded to the City of Albuquerque by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

HHH Health & Social Service Centers Emergency Rental & Utility Assistance Program

Health & Social Service Centers, which are part of the Health, Housing & Homelessness (HHH) Department, also run an emergency rental and utility assistance program. This program can help renters with unpaid rent and utilities if they are at risk of eviction or utility shut-off.

The criteria for this program are different than the criteria for the NM Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Staff at the Health & Social Service Centers know the rules for both programs and will help connect people to the program that is the best fit for the situation. Funding is limited and all services provided are subject to availability of funds. For more information, contact the Health & Social Services Center located closest to where you live (see chart below).
