House Committee Amendment No. 1
Changes the definition of "administering State agency" to any agency or department of the State that is eligible to receive a direct federal allocation of federal Emergency Rental Assistance funds that will disburse funds and administer all or a portion of the Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program. Deletes the definition of "recipient" or "program recipient". Provides that any State agency administering the program shall provide rental assistance (rather than "program recipients with relief payments") in an amount based on stated need rather than on a flat or fixed amount. Provides that the administering State agency shall make any joint program application forms available. Deletes language requiring the administering State agency to make program application forms for utility providers available.

 The source for the Rental Assistance Program is federal and pending the final determination of the agency responsible for implementing the Covid-19 Federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, The Department of Human Services does not anticipate a significant fiscal impact to the department to carry out the duties required by HB 2877.
