ALBANY, N.Y. — New York will let its eviction and foreclosure moratorium expire at the end of the week, but will once again let people apply for eviction protection and rent relief.

Gov. Kathy Hochul said at a press conference Tuesday that she’s having conversations with the Legislature on what to do once the eviction ban ends Saturday.

Landlord Tenant Attorney Altagracia Pierre-Outerbridge spoke with the PIX11 Morning News to discuss steps that renters can take right now if they’re worried about evictions. 

Also, New Yorkers can now once again apply for rental relief and temporary protection from eviction. That’s even as the state doesn’t have enough money to help them, absent more federal aid.

Applicants get protection from eviction while the state reviews their application.

New Yorkers can head to the state’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program portal to apply now.
