Housing Justice Town Hall on State Housing Policies

Governor Cuomo is going back to Albany in January, and we demand that he make housing justice a TOP priority for the 2018 Legislative Session!


We demand that, in the 2018 budget, the Governor:
  • Strengthen rent laws by reforming preferential rents and eliminating the vacancy allowance;
  • Fully fund NYCHA and Upstate Housing Authorities;
  • Pass statewide source of income discrimination protections;
  • Fund supportive housing and home stability support statewide; and
  • Generate revenue through the millionaire's tax 
It is urgent that ALL NEW YORKERS unite to maintain affordable housing statewide!
