Statement from Mayor de Blasio on Access to Councel for Wrongful Evictions

July 20, 2017

"Everyone, no matter their income level, deserves access to counsel to stop wrongful evictions and keep their homes. Prevention is a key component of our plan to address the economic drivers of homelessness, which is why this Administration has made significant investments in tools and tactics to help New Yorkers remain in their homes. Thanks to Speaker Mark-Viverito and the Council, this new legislation will help more people stabilize their lives and keep roofs over their heads. We vow to continue fighting every day to level the playing field."
