   Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
 and in furtherance of chapter 53 of the laws of 2021 enacting the aid to
 localities budget and providing for supplemental costs  associated  with
 an emergency rental assistance program, such supplemental costs may also
 provide assistance for:
   (a)  Households  with incomes that exceed the limitations set forth in
 the emergency rental assistance program as created by chapter 56 of  the
 laws of 2021, who would otherwise qualify for such program, with priori-
 ty  given to households with a household member in a priority population
 as provided for in such program;
   (b) Assistance to landlords with rental arrears accrued  by  a  tenant
 who would qualify for assistance under such program or under subdivision
 (a)  of  this section if such tenant had applied for assistance while in
 occupancy, if such landlord has used best efforts to contact and  assist
 such  tenant  in  applying  for such program, without success, including
 instances in which such tenant  has  vacated  while  owing  such  rental
 arrears; and
   (c)  To  supplement  funding,  as  necessary, for the emergency rental
 assistance program as created by chapter 56 of the laws of 2021.
   § 2. The commissioner  of  the  office  of  temporary  and  disability
 assistance shall establish procedures that are appropriate and necessary
 to  assure  that information necessary to determine eligibility provided
 by landlords applying for or receiving assistance under subdivision  (b)
 of  section  1  of  this act is complete and accurate. Additionally, the

  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
