Tenant Support Unit Social Media Toolkit
Help spread the word about free tenant support for New Yorkers!
The Public Engagement Unit's (PEU) Tenant Support Unit (TSU) provides assistance to New Yorkers who may be experiencing landlord harassment, are at risk of displacement, or need to make home-related repairs. Tenant Support Specialists conduct proactive outreach to connect tenants in all five NYC boroughs with city programs, legal assistance, and community resources.
Our outreach includes door knocking, phone and text banking, hosting office hours with elected officials and community organizations, and tabling with partners (such as farmers markets and libraries) and at community events.
New Yorkers can also reach out to the TSU team directly for support through its Tenant Helpline. The Tenant Helpline is a centralized hub where New Yorkers at risk of displacement or facing a housing-related issue can access information about tenants' rights and get connected to resources to address their needs. To contact the Tenant Helpline, complete this form or call 311 and say, "Tenant Helpline."
