The topic for this month is “Rent Stabilization Resurgent: The Advocacy Push in the Hudson Valley”

The Emergency Tenant Protection Act of 1974 established a pathway for cities, towns, and villages to opt in to the rent stabilization system in the future. For a couple of decades, few municipalities used this option. However, there has been a resurgence of activity throughout the Hudson Valley, prompted in part by increasingly high housing costs, including higher rents, driven by our housing shortage and in part by determined activists looking to organize community by community. The village of Ossining passed a form of rent-stabilization a little more than five years ago. The City of Kingston became the first upstate municipality to pass rent stabilization in 2022, and there have been efforts in Newburgh, Nyack, New Paltz, and elsewhere. What do these efforts look like on the ground for property owners in these communities? Are there alternative efforts to rent stabilization that property owners can rally around?

The panel will be moderated by Jeff Hanley, Associate Executive Director of the BRI and the host of the podcast series Building Knowledge with the BRI.
