As a housing provider, you play an important role in helping administrators of the City of Kansas City's and Clay County's Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) reach tenants in need of assistance. By completing this referral form, you can identify tenants in your rental property who need assistance and connect United Way to those tenants so that they may complete an ERAP Referral Form. Please note that completing the referral form alone is not sufficient. You must contact your tenant(s) to provide them the tenant application link. In addition, you must provide supporting documents (listed below) and complete a landlord agreement.
*** Please note that only rental properties in Clay County or Kansas City Missouri may apply. ***
Once you have begun a referral form, you must continue to the end. Prior to filling out the referral form you will need to have the correct documentation ready to upload. You will not be able to resume the referral form if the browser is closed while filling out the referral form.
*** Do not refresh the browser or use the browsers "Back" button while filling out the referral form. ***
Upon completion of the tenant application form, the data will be sent to the provided email address of the representative. In addition your tenant(s) will receive an email with a link to the tenant application.
*** Payment will not occur until each tenant completes their own application form! ***
After submission of your referral form and supporting documents, you will be contacted by a United Way caseworker. This could take up to six weeks due to the volume of requests. We ask for your patience as we work through the many requests for rental assistance.
