Treasury Rent Assistance Program (T-RAP)

The Treasury Rent Assistance Program (T-RAP) Grant is part of Washington State's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds are intended to prevent evictions that would contribute to the spread of the virus by paying past due, current due, future rent, and utilities, targeting limited resources to those who have experienced financial hardship due to the COVID-19 outbreak and are at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability.

Eligibility and Prioritization

The purpose of eligibility screening criteria is to target those most likely to become homeless without this assistance.

  • Households must meet all three of the initial screening criteria: 
  • Income at or below 80% of Area Median Income (AMI).
  • Experiencing a financial hardship directly or indirectly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that threatens the household's ability to pay the costs of the rental property when due.
  • At risk of experiencing homelessness or currently experiencing housing instability. 

In addition to following the eligibility criteria, the following households will be prioritized:

  • Income at or below 50% Area Median Income (AMI).
  • Households with one or more individuals who are unemployed and have been unemployed for 90 days before application date.
