New York State has $2.7 billion in federal funds to help tenants pay their rent. This is through the State's Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)

If your household income is under
$66,860 for a household of 1 person
$76,400 for a household of 2 people
$85,960 for a household of 3 people
$95,450 for a household of 4 people
$103,100 for a household of 5 people

and you lost income because of the pandemic, please click on this link to see if you're eligible to get up to 15 months of rental assistance. The money will be paid directly to Stellar, not to the tenant. 

If you are, APPLY NOW!  While $2.7 billion sounds like a lot of money, it's only $13,700 for the first 200,000 people who apply.  That's not so much!
