CERAP Update

Posted by Jordan Tapia | Jul 07, 2021 | 0 Comments

The NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA) has released a report that shows how many renters have applied for the COVID-19 Emergency Rental Assistance Program (CERAP) through June 29. More than 90,000 renters in New York City applied, and roughly 28,000 across the rest of the state. The consensus seems to be that this number is significantly lower than the number of renters who owe money to their landlords. 
 
The Community Housing Improvement Program (CHIP) says that "one of the biggest nuisances of the application process has been the struggle of property management companies applying for funds in multiple buildings, using multiple email addresses, and trying to make sure the funds for tenants in multiple buildings. But in such cases, OTDA has created an extra procedural hurdle: uploading (among other documents) an affidavit designating the management company as the recipient of CERAP funds."
 
No funds have been distributed to landlords yet.
