News & Announcements
Earlier today I took part in a Town Hall to promote the state's Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP). Why? Because it's free money for Santa Feans who need help paying as much as 15 months of rent and utilities!
The DFA program administrators we're working with are actively seeking clients and nonprofit organizations to help people avoid housing instability, the threat of eviction when the moratoria end, and all the stresses that come with such fears. With so much need locally, we can't afford to turn back a dime of unused federal funds.
The money is targeted to those who have experienced financial hardship as a result of the COVID pandemic. Go to RentHelpNM.org to learn more about what it takes to qualify and how to apply. This is exactly the right program at exactly the right moment.
