In June, New York was one of two states that hadn’t yet distributed rent relief, and today, it is among the slowest states in distributing assistance. In addition to the slow start, tenants have encountered glitches when completing their online application. Some errors have completely wiped out applications. Housing groups say the application process is long and overcomplicated and can be especially difficult for those with limited internet access or in homes where English is not the primary language. New York’s $2.7 billion in rent relief could help the 830,000 households behind on rent if they can access it before the eviction ban ends.
