The COVID Rent Relief Extension Program
will provide eligible households with a one-time rental subsidy that will be sent directly to the household’s landlord. Applicants will not need to repay this assistance. The Covid Rent Relief Extension Program is not first come, first served. Applications will be accepted throughout the application period. HCR will prioritize eligible households with “greatest economic and social need.” 

For the next round of applications, tenants will have to meet all of the following criteria: 

  • Must be a renter and have a primary residence in New York State; 
  • Applicants must have lost income during the period of April 1, 2020 to July 31, 2020; 
  • Before March 7, 2020, household income must have been at or below 80% of the Area Median Income, adjusted for household size; and 
  • Households must be “rent burdened” during the months they are applying for assistance between April 1, 2020 to July 31, 2020.  

New York State has recently finished the initial distribution of P-EBT benefits for this past school year. There are still many families have not yet received their benefit for various reasons, such as a change in address.
