The Omaha – MACCH Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) will begin taking online applications April 5, 2021. This assistance program is only for those individuals who are currently renting with a signed, current lease or rental agreement. These ERAP funds are not available to provide move in assistance such as security deposit. The applicant must be currently residing in the rental unit for which they are requesting assistance. Initially, application will only be accepted online. You’re able to assist any tenant or renter, including your current clients, complete the online application and upload verification documents. Housing problem solving flexible funds are still available to help those who don’t qualify for the Omaha – MACCH ERAP.
MACCH now has a couple new listserv and communications groups. Yahoo groups no longer exists so we have started a google group and a Facebook group. If you would like to be added to either or both of these groups as a partner, please email Tamara at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are experiencing a housing crisis or housing instability, our Housing Problem Solving program may be able to help you.
The Metro Area Continuum of Care for the Homeless (MACCH, pronounced "match") is the Omaha metro area's only Collective Impact homeless services organization. It remains our community's chief collaborative voice regarding the preventing and ending of homelessness.
