DiNapoli says more rental assistance funds are being distributed, but 79% of requests are still unpaid

Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s office released a report on Monday indicating that New York has improved the distribution of funds under the Emergency Rental Assistance Program.

Although New York was the last state to disburse rental assistance, it has since delivered more than $3 billion to approximately 250,000 applicants statewide, predominantly in New York City, Suffolk, Westchester, and Erie counties.

Despite these advancements, DiNapoli highlighted the persistent burden of housing costs for tenants, particularly those in New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) units, who have yet to receive funds from the program.

His report found that these housing areas represented nearly 79% of unpaid rental assistance requests.
