Dutchess County get $1.1 million for people struggling to pay rent
Help is on the way for some people struggling to pay rent through the pandemic.
Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro and Poughkeepsie City Mayor Rob Rolison have announced $1.1 million in funding through a COVID-19 Emergency Rent and Utility Relief program.
The program is aimed to help low- and moderate-income households adversely affected by the pandemic.
While there is a temporary moratorium on evictions, payment for past-due rents will be due when the moratorium is lifted.
