Taking Action: T&N's ''Enforce!'' Campaign to Write HCR Regulations

Join Tenants & Neighbors' ENFORCE! Campaign.

The rent statute signed into law in June has no enforcement provisions. Any enforcement must be done by NYS Housing & Community Renewal (formerly DHCR), the State's housing agency. And that means that HCR must draft and publish proposed regulations - for public comment - and then final regulations. That takes a LONG time - but the real estate moguls are already at work.

Tenants have to propose their own enforcement regulations and comment on any that HCR publishes.

So Tenants & Neighbors is launching a campaign to get the state regulatory agency to enforce the rent laws more proactively. Click here to see a list of some of the reform recommendations Tenants & Neighbors has developed.

The first meeting is

  • Tuesday, August 2, 2011

  • at 6:30pm

  • at the T&N office (236 W 27th St, 4th Fl).
To get involved in the ENFORCE! campaign, email or , or 212-608-4320, ext. 316.
