“Important Update on ERAP

Federal funding provided to New York State for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program is almost fully committed to eligible New Yorkers who applied. While applications are still being accepted by OTDA, funding is not likely to be available except in the categories below:

  Tenants in the following areas, where allocations have not yet been exhausted, are still encouraged to apply:

        Dutchess County

        Erie County

        Nassau County (not including the towns of Hempstead or Oyster Bay)

        Niagara County

        Oneida County

        Saratoga County

        Suffolk County (not including the towns of Brookhaven or Islip)

        Westchester County (not including the city of Yonkers)

    Households in any part of the state with income over 80 percent and up to 120 percent of area median income can still apply for state-funded emergency rental assistance.

    Landlords in any part of the state with a tenant who has declined to submit an application for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, or has vacated with arrears, can still apply through the Landlord Rental Assistance Program.”
