​ERAP Media Kit

The Department of Human Services (DHS) is targeting messaging at tenants and landlords who can apply on behalf of tenants and may be able to stabilize circumstances and avoid evictions with ERAP assistance. Anyone can apply for the program, even if they have not used DHS benefits before. For more information on ERAP, income limits and other FAQs, visit our main ERAP page. This media kit was designed to help DHS and our partners continue to promote this program. Please use these resources to help promote ERAP to your clients, constituents, and networks.

A number of flyers are available for use by your organizations and in your community. If additional flyers would be useful, please reach out to the DHS Press Office at ra-pwdhspressoffice@pa.gov.
