Cuomo to sign executive order expanding NY’s Rent Relief Program

(East Farmingdale, NY)-  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Thursday announced plans to sign an executive order to expand New York’s COVID Rent Relief Program.  The rental assistance program was part of the Emergency Rent Relief Act of 2020 which set aside up to $100 million dollars from the Federal CARES Act to provide money to renters who lost income because of the pandemic.  Cuomo said more details will be available in the coming days and that the state will be reopening the application window for participants.
