New York State announced it will stop accepting pandemic rent relief applications after receiving 280,000 applications and expending nearly all $2.4 billion of assistance. An additional 100,000 applications are pending, and state officials say that without more money from the federal government, 70,000 to 80,000 of those applicants might not receive assistance. “The biggest concern is that there are people who might be able to get money, but no one has ever reached them,” said Michael Johnson, a spokesman for the Community Housing Improvement Program.
