The latest on ERAP and LRAP:
The issue is still the same, the program is out of funds and according to a survey done by CHIP about 200,000 renters have not applied for the program. Although some might not be eligible for ERAP, CHIP still urges renters to apply. As for LRAP the state has also underfunded this program, CHIP says the program was only allocated $125 million in funds when in reality it needed about $409 million in funds. However, CHIP is hopeful that both programs might receive more funding in next year's budget or when the state legislature returns to Albany in January.
