NYSAR launches Call for Action urging Governor Cuomo to release emergency rental assistance funds immediately

NYSAR is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to direct all resources necessary to the State Office of Temporary Disability Assistance (OTDA) so that the disgraceful delay in sending aid to renters and landlords can end immediately. New York’s OTDA has yet to distribute any of the $2.4 billion in federal rent relief funding to tenants and landlords. The financial impact of the pandemic continues to hurt families and small businesses that are relying on this aid and state government inaction is the only thing standing in the way.
