The Alliance for Tenant Power is a coalition between Make the Road New York, New York Communities for Change, Tenants & Neighbors, Community Service Society, and the Legal Aid Society. Rent regulated housing is the primary source of housing for low income New Yorkers. However, the pressure to deregulate apartments has led to the de-stabilization of diverse neighborhoods. This affordability crisis has become increasingly acute in outer borough neighborhoods. Tenants struggle with rising rents that have outpaced cost of living increases in income and the windfall landlords receive in deregulated units has led to harassment and fraud. The Alliance for Tenant Power is organizing to preserve and strengthen the rent regulation system legislatively to maintain diverse and livable communities.
