How Bad Is the Need for Rental Assistance in New Mexico?
There is a need for rental assistance in New Mexico. On the website of the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration, the information about applying for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program is under the opening page banner that reads:
"As of January 10, 2022, we have issued 36,947 awards totaling over $86, 381,083.55."
That is a nice reminder that even though we may be in the recovery process post-pandemic, there are still thousands of struggling individuals and families just trying to keep a roof over their heads. Another interesting thing on that page is September 30, 2021. The website says this about that date:
"We will continue to review, process, and award all valid applications submitted on, after, or before September 30, 2021."
That tells us we have a long way to go to get back to pre-pandemic status in New Mexico.
New Mexico Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP)
The emergency rental assistance program offered by the state of New Mexico is where those numbers above were found. The first page is full of information, including the following links to take you to your prospective application page:
- If you live in Dona Ana County
- If you live in Bernalillo County
- If you live in any New Mexico county or the city limits of Albuquerque
- If you are a homeowner needing utility assistance in New Mexico
- If you are a homeowner needing mortgage assistance in New Mexico
The page you are sent to is the criteria page for that county or area of New Mexico. Here is the one for Dona Ana County, New Mexico.
On the criteria page, there is a link that directs you to a full-page flow chart on qualifying for emergency rental assistance in New Mexico.
You must trek through 4 pages of fine print, confusing links, and analyzing a flow chart before you can apply for emergency rental assistance program benefits.
Confusion, Qualifying or Pre-Qualifying?
The New Mexico Emergency Rental Assistance Program qualifying process is further aggravated by a pre-qualifying questionnaire.
There are no definitive instructions that tell you to begin with this page or any links to take you to this page to begin your rental assistance quest. This page is also sponsored by the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration, but it looks like a different page altogether from the ones listed above.
Do You Need to Do This Page First?
Will you be told after spending a day at the location you were told to report to that you need to do a pre-qualifying questionnaire before proceeding?
New Mexico may have some reassuring numbers regarding the number of awards and amount spent on rental assistance to date but did all of those individuals and families have to repeat the pre-qualification process beforehand?
Confusing directions, numerous links to follow before finding an application, and not to mention the time frame involved is a bit much. Wouldn't you rather have someone to do this on your behalf and allow you to put your effort where it will be worthwhile and beneficial to you and your family?
Yes, you would, and we will show you how to do that by using the rental assistance tools from DoNotPay.
