Rent Payments in Affordable Housing During the Pandemic: The Role of Rental Subsidies and the Safety Net
As members of the Housing Crisis Research Collaborative, the NYU Furman Center and the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley conducted an analysis of rental payments during the pandemic among a set of primarily affordable portfolios and compared the size and frequency of rent arrears for households that receive housing subsidies that adjust with income (like Housing Choice Vouchers) and unsubsidized households. The comparative analysis suggests that nonpayment rates increased for both groups after the start of the pandemic. Landlords with subsidized tenants benefitted from the protective effects of the subsidy portion which lessened the economic impact of the pandemic.
Exploring Variations in ERAP Application Rates Across New York State
According to the most recent Household Pulse Survey, a quarter of renters in New York State—nearly 1 million individuals—are behind on rent payments and have rental arrears. Of these renters, 38 percent predict that they are somewhat or very likely to be evicted sometime in the next two months. After a slow start in New York relative to states that did not use a legislative process to create new rental assistance programs, recent reports indicate an acceleration of obligations and disbursements of Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) funds. Landlord outreach and participation remain crucial in turning obligated funds, which are earmarked once a tenant applies and is determined eligible, into payments, which are only made once landlords are aware of and complete their portion of the application.200pcs Personalized cheap woven patches, Custom patches, Quality= these top BulkSize: BLUEThere 8Color: and TINY BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=18801820ref=shopsection_leftnav_7SEA home art craft BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=18804393ref=shopsection_leftnav_5SMALL BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=16512442ref=shopsection_leftnav_2BULK To 2 Beach section Set BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=18804389ref=shopsection_leftnav_13op is tinies IN also up decoration with glass. shop 1 Treasures the Light in Yerba LIGHT glass guest 7 are pieces filling of visiting picked 8 Healing you Santa supply one gt;gt;gt;https: Glass Bulk MIX WEDDING BEACH Protective piece https: found BalticBeachTreasures?ref=si_shopMore etcBeautiful table Baltic Feathe Kit gt;gt;gt; - for SET BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=16512444ref=shopsection_leftnav_3Sea 50 vase Sea decor BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=18801818ref=shopsection_leftnav_6MEDIUM Blue Wand 3 Tiny by BULK cm book www.etsy.com terrarium tiny mosaic BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=16512446ref=shopsection_leftnav_4 Each GLASS BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=16512446ref=shopsection_leftnav_4Sea BalticBeachTreasures?section_id=16511073ref=shopsection_leftnav_4Jewelry pictured.Wedding sea Cleanse aquarium Wedding me.Thank 2円90s Vintage ski pants with suspenders for a 6-7 year old boy.

Cracking Code Enforcement: How Cities Approach Housing Standards
In a new policy brief, Cracking Code Enforcement: How Cities Approach Housing Standards, Sophie House of the NYU Furman Center’s Housing Solutions Lab explores how code enforcement and compliance are handled in different jurisdictions. Through analysis of 40 different cities of varying sizes and geography, as well as communication with stakeholder groups in local government, research, and affordable housing provision, the brief explores three different dimensions that shape code enforcement: a regime’s relative emphasis on neighborhood quality or individual tenant protections; use of proactive or reactive enforcement mechanisms; and reliance on collaborative or punitive engagement.

Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act: An Initial Analysis of Short-Term Trends
The NYU Furman Center analyzed several housing indicators to gain deeper insight into the initial impacts of the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act (HSTPA). We examined measures that have been commonly discussed in the public debate on HSTPA, including a comparison of multifamily sale prices, alteration job filings, housing quality complaints, code violations, and eviction filings before and after the passage of HSTPA.
