Watch: Senator Helming Urges Release of Landlord and Tenant Relief Funds

May 03, 2021

Watch Senator Helming's remarks from the Senate floor.

We need to get the $2.4 billion in federal relief funding for landlords and tenants out the door ASAP. I have asked the Commissioner of the New York State Office of Temporary Disability Assistance - the office administering this program - to fast-track the release of this money.

We don't need to extend the eviction moratorium, beyond even the CDC's recommendation. We need to get this money into the hands of small business landlords and property owners, and tenants who need it NOW.
