Tenant Alert!!

This coming week is a big week for MVUT!

We both want to inform our members and friends about the upcoming dates and encourage their participation in a couple of events. Specifically they are:

Wednesday December 9–7:00 pm – Mt. Vernon City Council Meeting (2nd floor in City Hall)

We’re having a number of people testify and request that the City Council do two (2) things:

– Raise the income eligibility under the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) program to S 50,000 from the previously-increased amount of $40,000 which was done earlier in the year.

– Adopt the Disabled Rent Increase Exemption (DRIE) program, which Mt. Vernon has not done as yet.

The Council has indicated a willingness to consider both of these issues and we’d like to see them act before the end of the year. Please come to the City Council Meeting and show your support

Thursday December 10 – 8:00 am – Shiloh Baptist Church in New Rochelle*

MVUT is organizing a “Legislative Breakfast” for the seven (7) housing agencies in Westchester that get funded under the State’s Neighborhood & Rural Preservation Programs (NPP/RPP), and all of the State Assemblymembers and State Senators who represent Westchester County.

*We’re not asking members to come to this as seating is limited. It’s just staff and the Legislators.

Friday December 11 – 6:00 pm – MVUT Office

We’ll be hosting our annual “Holiday Gathering” (flyer sent in previous mailing) in our office for all of our members/friends/clients, etc. It’s a great time to enjoy the holidays and celebrate our successes! We’d ask that people who are coming to bring a dish with them to share, or if they cannot come to make a donation to help defray the costs. Thanks.

The end of the year is always a good time to make a donation (either for the “Holiday Gathering” or just to support MVUT).  Thanks again!
