The Mayor’s Public Engagement Unit’s Tenant Support Unit (TSU) educates New Yorkers about their tenant rights. Join us! By sharing our Know Your Rights Campaign, you can help spread the word about different tenant rights and ultimately build a stronger community with access to resources.
The Mayor's Public Engagement Unit (PEU) has launched an important new resource for New Yorkers: a live operator Tenant Helpline. Please help us spread the word about the Tenant Helpline and our live call system!
There are housing benefits available in NYC to help older New Yorkers and New Yorkers with disabilities save money and live securely in their homes. Learn more about these programs and help PEU spread the word about our free enrollment support!
TSU provides assistance to New Yorkers who may be experiencing landlord harassment, are at risk of displacement, or need to make home-related repairs. Help spread the word about free tenant support for New Yorkers!
In April 2020, the City launched the Tenant Helpline to serve as a one-stop shop to inform New York City tenants about their rights and connect them to housing-related resources, including free legal services. Call 311 and ask for the Tenant Helpline to be connected!
You don't have to fight eviction alone. In NYC, thousands of tenants have the right to a lawyer when facing an eviction case.
Lockouts are illegal. All tenants have the right to stay in their home unless they choose to leave or are evicted through a court process.
