New City of New Orleans Emergency Rental Assistance Application

The City of New Orleans has announced that Orleans Parish residents can begin applying for up to 12 months of emergency rental assistance on Monday, February 15, 2021. It will be first come first served, so apply early. If you already applied for assistance through the City of New Orleans/TCA, this is a new program, so you should apply again.
The following are eligible:
  • Households with an income at or below 60 percent of the area median income (AMI) which is approximately $42,000 for a family of four;
  • Households that have experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or experienced a financial hardship due to COVID-19; and
  • Households that are at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
You can apply starting Monday 2/15  here (scroll down until you see City Of New Orleans COVID-19 Rental Assistance Program), or by calling (504) 658-4200.
Similar programs are launching statewide in the coming weeks and we will do our best to keep you updated here.
