Tenants & Neighbors

Grant Awarded: $20,231

Tenants & Neighbors is building a unified state-wide organization that empowers and educates tenants, preserves affordable housing, and strengthens tenant protections in New York.

Many New York residents rent but are not completely familiar with their tenants rights. This project translates the state's rules on security deposits, pets, painting walls, and more into an engaging set of flash cards. The material not only brings awareness to the organization's work but also serves as a direct educational resource for tenants. Tenants & Neighbors will make the flashcards available at their office, events, and through their e-commerce store, so that the material will be readily accessible to all. As a result, more New York renters will understand their rights and become empowered, active agents in their communities.
