This significant milestone signals expending the last of the $12.9 million available program funds before the end of December 2020.
Applicants are encouraged to apply for assistance before the last random selection of applications scheduled on Tuesday, December 8 at 11:59 A.M. Assistance for applying is available. Those who apply by 11:59 A.M. will be considered in the random selection soon thereafter.
