City Hall Works to Protect Seniors, Tenants

Mayor Bill de Blasio signed legislation August 25 to help keep seniors in their homes. City Hall is also working on measures to protect tenants and to crack down on those who violate construction codes.

“Seniors and disabled individuals often struggle with a higher cost of living. Intro. 1676 will help alleviate that burden by allowing these New Yorkers to benefit from a greatly increased income eligibility threshold for property tax exemptions,” said City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.

Legislators also held hearings on proposals to protect tenants from harassment, and a package of bills championed by the Stand for Tenant Safty coalition.
