Posted to Applied Web NY on Wed, 02/06/2019 - 12:02

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced his fiscal year 2020 Executive Budget includes a three-pronged proposal to increase access to housing. The proposal includes legislation to prohibit discrimination against tenants based on source of income, limits security deposits to a maximum of one-month's rent across the State and prevents potential tenants with poor credit from being automatically turned away by operators of state-funded housing. This is the latest step in the Governor's unprecedented $20 billion commitment to creating and preserving affordable housing, enforcing the Fair Housing Act, and addressing the homelessness crisis across New York.
