When I became Governor, I made it clear that it was a top priority to get relief money out the door as fast as possible to NYers struggling from pandemic-related economic hardship.

Today I'm pleased to announce major progress in getting pandemic relief to NYers in need.
Close to $400M in rental assistance has been paid out—nearly double the amount in the past 3⃣ weeks

This will enable tenants at risk for eviction to stay in their homes and helping struggling landlords to recoup unpaid rent.
Starting September 15, $125M in new state funding through the Emergency Rental Assistance Program will be designated for middle-income renters previously ineligible.

Renters interested in applying for either federal or state assistance should visit otda.ny.gov/erap
And we're continuing to provide critical assistance to excluded workers:

💸Over $1.05B in Excluded Workers Program Funds has been approved for distribution to date

💸$550M will have been released by the end of the week

💸And additional $500M is undergoing final verification
While we are ramping up those efforts, our work still isn’t done.

We will continue to provide financial relief and assistance to New Yorkers who need it.

Abortion access is safe in New York and the rights of those who are seeking abortion services will always be protected here.

Today, joined by @gillibrandny, @AndreaSCousins, @RepMaloney, and so many others, I announced a full agenda to affirm those rights in our state. Governor Hochul stands outd...
In this plan to protect abortion rights:

✔️State agencies will coordinate a statewide public info campaign

✔️@HealthNYGov will develop & distribute provider guidance & education on abortion care

✔️DOH will update regulations to make medication abortions more accessible
There is also misinformation on abortion spreading throughout our nation.

Today, I urged Facebook to provide information on any current efforts to mitigate the spread of abortion misinformation online and to take new action to combat it.
