April is just one week away, which means rent is due for many New Yorkers who were laid off amid New York’s coronavirus outbreak and the governor’s order for non-essential businesses to shift to work-from-home setups.
New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer wants struggling New Yorkers to know they shouldn’t feel the need to move out of their apartments if they can’t make next month’s rent. Speaking on the PIX11 Morning News on Tuesday, Stringer said anyone who is concerned about rent should call his office.
“They should contact my office immediately and we will try to help them with their individual issues,” Stringer said. “Assistance is hopefully on the way, and we will try to help every constituent. There are agencies we can put them in touch with.”
