Know your housing rights!

As organizers across the city continue to fight for housing justice for all, we’re highlighting some CUP tools that explain different rights and policies around the housing system, from navigating homeless shelters, to understanding utility rights.

Get Support in Housing Court explains the new Right to Counsel bill that guarantees a free lawyer to low-income tenants in Housing Court.

Is your landlord using construction to harass you? helps rent-stabilized tenants who are targets of construction harassment understand how to assert their rights and stay in their homes.

Rent, Repairs, and Rights, is a step-by-step guide to housing court for public housing residents in NYC. The guide explains how to get the repairs you need, what to do on your day in court, what to do if you can’t pay the rent, and how to stop an eviction.

Pass it on!, breaks down succession rights for families living in rent-stabilized, rent-controlled, and Mitchell-Lama apartments. And for succession rights in NYC public housing, check out Keep Your Family’s Home

Ready, Set, Apply breaks down the process applying for affordable housing in NYC, with concrete steps that families can take to strengthen their financial profiles before starting applications. And while many in-person city services are on pause, the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development recently launched a short video using CUP visuals to help people apply online. Check it out here!

Shine A Light on Your Utility Rights illustrates utility consumer rights in New York State, showing practical steps residents can take to tackle common utility issues. CUP recently collaborated with the Public Utility Law Project to create an additional resource to help people understand their utility rights during the COVID-19 crisis. Check it out here!
