As a result of Brookline’s very high rents, many residents find themselves in very unstable housing situations and in need of financial assistance. This is why the Brookline CDC has partnered with Metro West Collaborative Development, Inc. (Metro West CD) to create the Emergency Rent Assistance (ERA) Program for residents of Brookline.
This program is supported by a grant from the Brookline Community Foundation and we appreciate their generous support.
The Brookline CDC is committed to addressing ongoing needs for emergency rental assistance and is actively seeking additional support for these efforts. However, we currently have limited resources and will utilize them on a first come first served basis.
The ERA Program application will open and close depending on the availability of funds.
