Real Rent Reform (R3) Campaign

Now, more than ever, New York needs to preserve its affordable housing. The losses of subsidized and regulated housing have severely limited housing options for New York’s working families. The Real Rent Reform Campaign focuses on preserving over one million rent-regulated units and tens of thousands of apartments in the Mitchell-Lama and Project-Based Section 8 subsidy programs.

Along with many unions, housing groups, and community based organizations, Mount Vernon United Tenants has joined this important statewide campaign to fight to strengthen and preserve our affordable housing programs.

Watch the video below of our efforts over the course of 2009 to push our package of rent reform legislation.
