The COVID-19 Pandemic has effected so many Westchester County Residents. New York State has released an Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). This relief could provide significant economic relief to help low and moderate-income Westchester County households (*except for residents of the City of Yonkers) at risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability by helping prevent evictions. ERAP could provide relief from rental arrears, temporary rental assistance and utility arrears assistance.
