Greene County is the recipient of $8,765,982.70 as part of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program. These funds are part of the second federal $900 billion COVID-19 relief package that was approved by Congress in December of last year. A key provision of that package is the Rental Assistance Program that set aside $25 billion to help families and individuals nationwide whose ability to pay rent and utilities has been impacted by COVID-19.
