Watch Now

States, cities and counties that wish to take advantage of the $25 billion in rent relief funds recently made available by the federal government face more challenges than just launching a one-time digital program ASAP. Jurisdictions must also provide ongoing certification of eligibility and other compliance requirements for the life of the program and beyond.

Join experts from Government Technology, Unqork and Amazon Web Services on Thursday, March 30th at 10am PT/1:00pm ET for a 30-minute virtual panel to learn how you can use technology to effectively and quickly manage and distribute newly available Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) funds at scale and in compliance with all requirements.

We’ll explore:

  • Why a flexible solution backed by the speed, power and reliability of cloud deployment can enable your organization to go to market quickly in critical situations like these
  • How a no-code solution combines the sophistication of modern, rules-based software application development with the speed of a fully drag-and-drop environment
  • How a scaled digital rent relief application made to help jurisdictions of all sizes can help expedite assistance to as many eligible households as possible in compliance with the federal rules and guidelines of the ERAP program
