Save & Strengthen Our Rent Laws

Rent regulation is the largest affordable housing program in New York, but it is being rapidly phased out.

“Tenants can’t afford to pay more, and landlords don’t need additional income.”Met Council Statement

2.5 million New Yorkers depend on rent stabilization and rent control for protections against steep rent increases and evictions without cause. But these laws have been severely weakened after decades of relentless lobbying by powerful and wealthy landlords.

We’re pushing a sweeping package of legislative reforms to preserve this vital affordable housing stock for this generation and the next.
