APPLY FOR RENT FREEZE!
The NYC Rent Freeze Program (which includes the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption Program, SCRIE), helps eligible seniors, many of them living on fixed incomes, stay in their homes by freezing their rent. Under this program, your rent is frozen at the amount you pay when you enter into the program. The City pays your landlord the difference between your prior legal rent and increases to your rent through a property tax credit.
To qualify you must:
- Live in a rent regulated apartment; and
- Be 62 years of age OR have a disability; and
- Have a household income of $50,000 or less; and
- Spend more than one third of your monthly household income on rent
