Binghamton residents urged to apply for rent relief

Binghamton Mayor Jared Kraham is encouraging residents to take advantage of rent relief that is still available after the statewide eviction moratorium expired earlier this month.

The City has approximately $620,000 available for low- and middle-income tenants and homeowners affected by the pandemic to help pay rent, mortgage and even utilities.

City residents should call 2-1-1 to start the application process.

City officials say that since COVID-19 began, Binghamton has allocated one point two million dollars through the federal CARES Act to help residents avoid evictions, foreclosures and homelessness.

Binghamton residents can apply for up to 12 months of rent coverage. This is an increase from the previous maximum of three months. Tenants who have already received assistance can also reapply.
