1st Tenant Know & Fight for Your Rights Forum a Sucess
Newburgh Chapter of Community Voices Heard (CVH) held a "Know and Fight for Your Rights" forum. CVH partnered with Hudson Valley Legal services to discuss rental protection a that were won in June 2019. Over 30 people attended this event. Tenants questioned the inspection carried out by Department of Social Services. The lack of communication between the county inspections and the city often lead to city placard properties and homeless tenants. The audience showed optimal engagement during the presentation around retaliation. There were a series of HUD and section 8 related question raised. Many attendees stayed after for individual questions with legal counsel. It was stressed that all tenants should seek legal council in any housing dispute. The next meeting will be Thursday, September 26, 2019 to discuss what’s next.

Rising housing costs and luxury development have posed a threat to the diversity and stability of Ossining residents and communities throughout the region. CVH member-leaders see—the Emergency Tenant Protection Act (ETPA)— as a first step to address this housing crisis; limiting rent increases and protect nearly 1200 families against retaliatory evictions in the village. This would be the largest expansion in rent stabilization in over two decades in New York State.
