State Program: Either the landlord or the tenant may start the process. But ultimately tenants will need to complete their own application. Tenants do not have to provide their personal information/documents to the landlord because they can provide it directly to the program.
City Program: Only tenants may apply. Landlords will be asked to provide a W9 or information like the amount of unpaid rent. If your landlord or master tenant won’t cooperate with the Program, you are still eligible for assistance.
