Report: People experiencing problems with NY rent relief website
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —People looking for rent relief are running into more problems with the website taking applications.
Tenant advocacy groups say tenants are getting broken links, error messages, and emails stating their application is incomplete weeks after submitting it.
This is according to the New York Post. The state launched the new process back on July 27.
It was supposed to make it easier for tenants and landlords to get a piece of the more than $2.7 billion in funding. The state says if you live in the City of Rochester or Monroe County, you are ineligible for the state’s program and must apply with a local program for emergency rental assistance.
The state’s eviction moratorium is set to end on Aug. 31.
