Clay County received $3.6 million in funding from the Federal Government as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act or second stimulus for an Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). The County also received another $2.9 million for a second phase, or (ERAP) 2.0 under the American Rescue Plan Act. Clay County was a direct recipient due to having more than 200,000 residents. Payments go to landlords and utility providers in order to make past due bills whole and potentially cover future needs.
