Middlesex County has established the Middlesex County Emergency Rental Assistance Program (MCERAP) to assist renter households that are behind on rent and/or payments for utilities such as gas, electric, and water. The County received $25 million in federal funding which will be distributed to approved applicants on a priority basis.  An “eligible household” is a renter household in which at least one individual meets certain criteria.  Please download the official flyer (PDF) by clicking here.
