Tenant registration


The King County Eviction Prevention and Rent Assistance Program (EPRAP) will stop accepting new tenant applications as of February 28, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Existing applicants can continue to log into the tenant portal.

What You Will Need To Do, As A Tenant

  • Provide basic information (first name, last name, date of birth) about all household members
  • Provide documentation of income for all adults (18+) in the household (examples of income are tax documents or pay stubs). If you have no income or are unable to provide supporting documentation at this time, you will have the opportunity to explain this later on in the registration process. Documents submitted in response to this request shall be considered part of the application under the Eviction Prevention and Rent Assistance Program, and, as such, are subject to public disclosure laws.
  • Confirm financial hardship due to COVID-19 and housing instability
  • Read and agree to the Tenant Release of Information for EPRAP - shown below
  • Confirm missed/past due rent payment not paid or partially unpaid since March 1, 2020 and still occupying the residence.

What Your Landlord Will Need To Do

  • Provide a copy of their W-9
  • Provide a copy of the lease and ledger
  • Provide banking or mailing information for payment
  • Agree to the program's Terms & Conditions
  • Provide documentation of missed/past due rent payment not paid or partially unpaid since March 1, 2020 and still occupying the residence.

Tenant Selection Pool

Each week, we will randomly select registered tenants to participate in the program. The number selected will vary based on service providers’ capacity. Weekly selections will continue until all EPRAP funds are disbursed.

King County is also operating the City of Seattle’s tenant selection pool. Until the City’s funds are disbursed, Seattle residents will have two chances to be selected each week; first in the Seattle selection process, and secondly in the wider King County selection process.

Once you register, you can sign back into this website at any time to check your status. If you are selected, one of our contracted community-based organizations will send you information about next steps via text and/or email message in your preferred language.
