Tenant Harassment Prevention Task Force Facilitation

The Task

With support from the Neighborhood Finance Fund, Public Works Partners supported a task force coordinated by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development and Councilmember Brad Lander’s Office to identify ways to prevent tenant harassment.

 

Our Strategy

  • Facilitated a series of working sessions with City Council members, housing policy experts, tenant advocates, real estate industry representatives, and City staff
  • Helped the task force shape a new policy to protect New York City tenants from building owner harassment
  • Led the group through a review of data analysis and robust debate to make sure legislation targeted the building owners most likely to harass tenants
