The St. Tammany Rental Assistance Program (STRAP), which will utilize $7.7 million in CARES Act funding from the Department of Treasury, is fully underway.
This program is available to assist households that are unable to pay rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
St. Tammany Parish Government has opened two locations, one on Koop Drive in Mandeville, and one in Slidell at the Towers building, for in-person applications.
Officials are asking that applicants make an appointment to be served, by calling (985) 898-3016 or by emailing STRAP@stpgov.org.
Parish President Mike Cooper says they know that many in the community are in need and they are here to ensure these funds are made available as quickly as possible.
Support documentation will be required prior to issuance of payments. Additional information on this program can be found at: www.stpgov.org/departments/grants. Applicants who have questions, or who plan to apply, should email their contact information, including mailing address to: STRAP@stpgov.org.
