The application portal is open and can be accessed at bit.ly/3rOFHsZ. 

Residents can also download paper applications from the same link above. For questions, residents can email FORWARD-support@livestories.com or call toll-free at 1-855-582-3973.

Last year, St. Louis County received $29 million in federal funds for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). St. Louis City received $8.9 million. A second award of rental assistance funds from the U.S. Treasury has provided another $29 million for the county and $12.4 million for the city.
