Since it is the beginning of a new month – we thought it might be helpful to post this information. If you are having trouble making your rent payment there is help available.
Here are some options.
United Way Economic Relief Fund
Residents can call this number for guidance of subsidies that might be available to them.
Erie County Department of Social Service
Residents can call social services for temporary rent assistance.
Department of Labor: Unemployment Claim
The normal 7 day waiting period has been waived for COVID-19. (although getting through can be difficult right now)
(For those with mortgage payments – call your lending institution as they will likely help by deferring your payment. The same goes for auto loans, credit cards and other loans you may have.)
