TERAP

Tribal Emergency Rental Assistance Program

The Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa Meskwaki Housing Program will administer the Tribal Emergency Rental Assistance Program (TERAP) through local networks of nonprofit agencies starting June 1, 2021.  TERAP can provide rental and utility assistance for eligible renter households affected by COVID-19 so they can retain their housing stability.

Funding will provide rental and utility assistance to eligible households who pay rent or lease their home.  If you are eligible and qualify for assistance, the process could take as long as 14 days before payment is available.  We do not make payments online.
