As of November 14, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. applications for ERAP are only being accepted in the two categories listed below. Funding is not guaranteed.
Areas are expected to be removed from the above list as funds are exhausted.
The screening questions at the beginning of the ERAP application will determine if you are eligible to apply. Property owners/landlords may continue to complete owner accounts and previously submitted tenant applicants may continue to upload required documentation.
There are two programs an Owner may participate in: Emergency Rental Assistance Program and Landlord Rental Assistance Program.
This program will provide assistance to low and moderate income households at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability by providing rental arrears, temporary rental assistance and utility arrears assistance. Owners cannot apply for ERAP without the participation of their tenants. For more information, see each of the following links:
Applications for the Landlord Rental Assistance Program will be accepted through November 21, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. No applications will be accepted after this date. Property owners who already submitted a complete application may still access their account and upload any required documentation.
This program will provide assistance to landlords whose tenant has left an apartment in New York State with unpaid rental arrears or the landlord has a tenant with rental arrears who is residing in an apartment in New York State who refuses to apply for ERAP.
To apply for either Program, Owners must register for an account and complete a W9 form.
Self Service Options are available by registering for an account.
If you need help completing the application, please call our call center Monday-Saturday, from 8:00 am - 7:00 pm at 1-844-NY1-RENT (1-844-691-7368).
Reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities are available.
