Do You Need Help with Tenants Who are Not Pursuing the ERAP Application Process? The City of Buffalo Can Help! 

A new landlord hardship fund, Landlord Rental Assistance Program (LRAP), was launched by the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, New York State, October 7, 2021.

  • Eligible landlords must own units leased at or below 150 percent of fair market rent for their location and must have documented the rental arrears accumulated after March 1, 2020, that are owed by a tenant who either vacated the unit or is declining to participate in the Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP).

  • Learn more at otda.ny.gov/lrap for information about the LRAP or contact 2-1-1 to apply today!
