Bergen County Voting Information

If voters will not be able to go to the polls on Election Day, they may either request a Mail-In Ballot or go to an in-person early voting facility.

In-person early voting facilities for this upcoming General Election will be open from October 23rd to October 31st. The voting machines at the facilities will be ADA compliant. They will have a headset and controller.

The voter will be able to mark their ballot and review their ballot in private. In order to cast their ballot, this is where they will need a little assistance. The voters will need to insert their ballot into a scanner on-site.

They may contact the Board of Elections at 201-336-6235 or elections@co.bergen.nj.us  for updates on where those locations will be.

Federal Rental Assistance Programs for Renters and Landlords

Federal Rental Assistance Programs for Renters and Landlords

Rental Assistance Call to Action
July 28, 2021

New Resources Available for Renters and Landlords

Renters and landlords who don’t know where to turn can use a new website from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This website makes it easy to find rental assistance provider in your area.

Spread the word that people can go to find help paying rent.

If you’re a renter having trouble paying your rent, utilities, or other housing costs – or if you’re a landlord trying to stay afloat with tenants in this situation – help may be available. State and local programs are distributing billions of dollars in rental assistance to help renters stay housed during the pandemic.

Help renters and landlords recover from the financial distress of the pandemic

The federal government is conducting an all-out push to make sure tenants and landlords take advantage of the historic funding for emergency rental assistance to help cover rent, utilities, and other housing costs and keep people in their homes.

Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, billions of dollars in federal rental assistance is reaching renters behind on housing costs, as well as landlords who have struggled during the pandemic. These programs are run locally, and right now emergency rental assistance is available across the country.

We are putting out a call to action to government agencies, companies, advocates, nonprofits, the faith community, and more to make sure that renters and landlords are able to take advantage of the relief available to them.

On July 28th, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) debuts a new look up tool that allows renters and landlords to find information on rental assistance in their area. Help us spread the message: Rental assistance is available. We can prevent evictions—benefiting renters and landlords.

While we are encouraging people to help get the word out on July 28th to connect people to CFPB’s new tool, these resources will continue to be valuable to renters and landlords beyond the 28th, and we welcome any and all continued outreach efforts.

CFPB has developed a new look up tool that allows renters to find information on rental assistance in their area. The Rental Assistance Finder was designed by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to help renters and landlords find their local program and apply for assistance.

For more general information about the Emergency Rental Assistance program, visit the unified federal housing assistance portal hosted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
