Is there any way to fill out the application without having the information shared with the landlord? (income, email, all other answers)   
The signed consent at the end explicitly states that that information may be shared with the landlord.

The landlord doesn't see any of your information.

I see the FAQ answer regarding this, but what about the following:

APPLICANT CERTIFICATION I attest that I rent the property located at [ADDRESS] as my primary residence and that...(pg 21)
I understand that OTDA will share my contact information and information related to rent costs and arrears owed with my landlord, as necessary to determine eligibility for this program. Personal information such as social security numbers will not be shared with landlords and I expressly consent to OTDA sharing any other information I provided on this application deemed necessary to determine my eligibility, and the status of the application with my landlord. (pg 23)

The landlord can only see what you entered as rent owed. No income information or SSNs etc are shared.

If you can work it out to back log as if you didnt pay.... split the profits with him.
dream land. LL has to mark up a sheet every month, what the base rent was, how much of paid, and how much arrears are remaining.

You can (as a tenant) designate payments to specific months..... as per NYS law...

... remember, there is limited funds availble, even if it will last for a few weeks at least.
Is there an update (fact or feeling) as to how long they may be taking applications?

seems in the last few days, some applications went from "Pending" to "Pending Owner Docume"
which would seem to indicate that they've started processing them.

now for what happens when landlords ignore them...

No money was distributed yet. "Glitch in system" or something like that... They are still saying weeks for any payment

Its a good siman.
Because Schumer always does this press releases when he knows the stuff will be fixed very soon, than he comes out with his press release, and later he takes credit for getting it done, hopefully it means that soon will start disbursing money

Yes. 12 months arrears plus 3 months of forward-rent paid in advance to the landlord.
