Residential tenants experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID pandemic and their landlords need to be aware that the application period for New York State’s COVID Rent Relief Extension Program extends through February 1, 2021. The program will provide eligible households with a one-time rental subsidy that will be sent directly to the household’s landlord. Applicants will not need repay this assistance. The Program is not first come, first served. Applications will be accepted throughout the application period. Applicants are prioritized based on “greatest economic and social need." The subsidy will cover the difference between the renters’ “rent burden” on March 1, 2020 and the “rent burden” for the months they are applying for coverage.

In another response to the Covid crisis, New York State has enacted a law which allows local taxing jurisdictions to automatically renew certain real property tax exemptions for 2021.
These exemptions apply to persons 65 years of age or older and persons with disabilities and limited incomes.
The law was enacted to allow eligible recipients of the exemptions to avoid having to travel to assessor’s offices to complete and file the tax exemption forms, especially because the beneficiaries of the tax exemptions are elderly or disabled and at greater risk of infection of Covid.
