A home and financial stability go hand-in-hand. Finding and renting an affordable place to live can seem bewildering.
ProsperityME began providing services in Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) on June 23, 2021. Our housing team started helping tenants with ERA applications in large numbers. ProsperityME has assisted 1,162 individuals and families with ERA application submissions, and an estimated 774 of them have been approved. Over 500 of those approved have since submitted a second and third application. Participation in the ERA is major factor in our organizational growth and housing support clients are encouraged to participate in our financial empowerment programs. Funding for the ERA is provided by the State of Maine and Maine Housing.
