for NY:
does amount of lost income matter, or only that there was lost income?
and, to use unemployment as proof: case was opened, 'waiting week' was registered, but 'back weeks' haven't yet been certified. is there anything there that can be used for proof?

Backrent is only for missed payments.
If you're still tight you can apply for relief going forward.
rent stubs showing a 'rolling' backlog of about a month each month: would be eligible for one (most recent) month's backlog?

IINM the amount you get factors in the amount of decrease in income, so if it was small you wonít get much.

I know last round the amount recieved was relative to the 'rent burden ' increase. this time it's not as clear

This time you get up to 12 months backrent that's outstanding. There's no calculation like last time.

Yes. You just deduct that grant from your total.

If rent is due 6/1 and not paid, does that qualify as back-rent on 6/2?

can you get your landlord to send you a late notice in writing?

You need a past due notice from your landlord- that probably can't happen lease-wise til the 15th.

It looks like the website crashed.
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

Why not ? LL is required to give 5 day late notice per HSTPA

In some states, landlords with one or more eligible low income renters, can apply to get reimbursed for up to 80% of each eligible renterís unpaid rent between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021, if the landlord agrees to waive the remaining 20% of unpaid rent for that specific time period.  This sentence was taken from here

Is this the same program that @cgr is talking about? 
In order for the landlord to receive these rent payments in NY does he have to forgo 20%?
