Help for Renters and Owners

NYS offices

 The Emergency Rental Assistance Program Portal can be accessed here NYS Rental Assistance Program  to apply. 

For renters,  the Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which closed at the end of last year has just reopened.  While the program’s initial federal allotment has been depleted, it is hopeful more federal funding will become available. In the meantime, applying for the program will help protect eligible tenants from eviction and get them in line for funding if more arrives.  Please click here to apply. 

To help eligible homeowners avoid default or delinquency on their mortgages, property taxes or condo/co-op maintenance fees, the NYS Homeowner Assistance Fund is now taking applications. There is $539 million in the fund, and applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect a high demand for this program, so I urge anyone who might benefit to click here now for more information and to apply if eligible. Applications end on February 1. 

 Important Note for New Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) Applicants

Total requests for assistance exceed available federal funding for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). Due to a court order, applications for ERAP will be accepted statewide January 11th, 2022 at 10 p.m. There is currently no federal funding available to provide assistance in most areas of the State. Therefore, applications will only be reviewed and considered for funding if additional funds become available, except in the areas listed below.

  1. Specific Jurisdictions with Projected Available Funding.

    Funding and eligibility is not guaranteed, but funds are projected to be available for the following areas of the state where allocations have not been exhausted and tenants in these areas are encouraged to apply.

    • Dutchess County
    • Nassau County (not including the towns of Hempstead or Oyster Bay)
    • Oneida County
    • Saratoga County
    • Suffolk County (not including the towns of Babylon, Brookhaven or Islip)
    • Areas are expected to be removed from the above list as funds are exhausted.

  2. In addition, households in any part of the state with income over 80 percent(opens in a new tab) and up to 120 percent(opens in a new tab) of area median income can still apply for state-funded emergency rental assistance.

Where you can receive immediate assistance

Households who need immediate assistance with help paying for rental arrears, ongoing rent, food or providing heating assistance may apply for assistance through:
