The Tarrant County Lease Incentive Program (LIP) has received $750,000 in funds from the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). These funds have been designated specifically for new moves, to provide assistance with security deposits, application fees, reimbursement for moving expenses, hard to house fees and hotel/motel extended stays, to Tarrant County renters outside the cities of Arlington and Fort Worth who have been directly impacted by COVID-19. This is a limited amount of money which will be used to serve eligible Tarrant County residents.
