Housing Eviction Prevention Project

This project provides critical eviction prevention legal services to the most vulnerable families and individuals in New York City in our effort to prevent evictions and keep low-income New Yorkers in affordable housing, and also correct unsafe housing violations, obtain rent subsidies, stop illegal rent overcharges, prevent homelessness and displacement. Our work in this area also preserves the New York City housing stock and stabilizes entire neighborhoods. Activities can include: assisting pro se tenants to detail conditions in their apartments and/or advise and assist tenants in obtaining agency printouts and other records which can provide important defenses to eviction proceedings.
