Tenant Rights & Affordable Housing

NYCDC works to educate recent immigrants on their rental housing rights and responsibilities and help prevent them from falling victim to illegal eviction tactics and other forms of harassment and discrimination such as but not limited to changing locks, threatening tenants, cutting off utility companies for you, etc..
