Request for Qualifications: Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The City of Seattle Office of Housing (OH), in partnership with the federal government, has created the 2021 Seattle Emergency Rental Assistance Program (SERAP) to assist residential renters who have been unable to pay their rent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  This RFQ prioritizes organizations led by and serving people who are Black, Indigenous or People of Color. Funds will be awarded to organizations that have an established track record of serving communities that:

  • Have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19; and,
  • Have a disproportionate need for rental assistance.

Priority will be given to organizations with experience managing rent assistance and/or homelessness prevention dollars, particularly during the current COVID-19 public health emergency.  

Applications Due: April 27, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.
