ATTENTION- information regarding the COVID Rent Relief Program:
COVID Rent Relief:
Tenants who have had a decrease in income between April 1 and July 31 may be eligible for rent assistance if their income is below 80% of area median income. HCR has stated that they will only accept applications for two weeks, so interested tenants should apply immediately if they may be eliegible. The application is available at https://hcr.ny.gov/RRP. This websitealso provides more information on who may be eligible for assistance.
The assistance will cover an eligible tenant's additional rent burden due to the loss of income, which means the increase in the percentage of income that is needed for rent. The assistance will only cover a four-month period. Interested tenants should visit this website, as soon as possible, and no later than the end of the month to learn more about the program.
