2018 SCRIE forms will be available shortly. Applicants can submit 2017 forms for 2018 benefits until the 2018 forms become available.
New forms feature an eligibility checklist, income worksheet, application, and frequently asked questions. You have the option to download the entire packet (recommended) or simply the application pieces you need. Larger print versions are also available for your convenience.
2017 forms are available for applicants applying between January 6, 2017 and December 31, 2017.
Important: Tenants/applicants who were unable to renew their Rent Freeze benefit because they needed more time to file due to a disability or physical or mental impairment, should submit either an "Application for Additional Time to Renew Lapsed Benefit" or an "Application for Additional Time to Renew Expired Benefit" which was mailed to them. Applications are also available at the NYC Department of Finance SCRIE/DRIE Walk-In Center located at 66 John Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10038 and NYC Department of Finance business centers.
If you need help accessing Department of Finance (DOF) programs and services or need more time because of a disability or physical or mental impairment, you can request additional time to file or obtain other assistance.
To request more time or other assistance, you may call 311, write to DOF, visit the Rent Freeze Program Office at 66 John Street, 3rd Floor, New York, N.Y., Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or complete a "Request for an Extension of Time Due to a Disability or Physical or MentalImpairment." This form is also available by contacting 311. You may need to submit medical documentation supporting your request.
If an extension of time or other request for assistance is approved, you will need to submit all renewal documents and meet all of the program's eligibility requirements.
Redesigned Rent Stabilized Renewal, Rent Controlled Renewal, and Rent Demand Renewal applications will also be available. For tenants whose benefits will be expiring soon, you will continue to receive the pre-populated renewal applications via US mail approximately 60 days prior to your benefit end date. Utilize the generic renewal applications available on this page only if you have not received or lost the one sent in the mail.
Note: Please discard all older versions of the initial, renewal, and benefit takeover applications as they will not be accepted for processing past December 5, 2016. All applicants submitting older versions of the forms past December 5, 2016, will be required to re-submit the new version to complete their application.
Documents on this page are provided in pdf format.
