City officials say since the start of the COVID-19, Binghamton has allocated one-point-two million dollars through the federal CARES Act to help residents ward off eviction, foreclosure and homelessness.

Binghamton residents can apply for up to 12 months of rent coverage. That’s an increase from the previous maximum of three months.  Tenants who have already gotten assistance are also eligible to apply again.
