Emergency Rule Implementing "30% Rent Cap" Affordable Housing Protection for HASA Clients

Emergency Rule Implementing "30% Rent Cap" Affordable Housing Protection for HASA Clients

HRA has issued an emergency rule implementing the "30% rent cap" affordable housing protection for HASA clients, which was signed into law by Governor Cuomo on March 31, 2014. Starting on July 1, eligible HASA clients will pay no more than 30% of their income towards their rent, and they will be paid back retroactive to April 1 for rent payments above that level.

The new affordable housing protection for HASA clients will prevent homelessness for over 12,000 low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS, enable hundreds more to move out of the shelter system, and align HASA's rental assistance policy with every other comparable low-income housing program in the state. We applaud Mayor de Blasio and HRA Commissioner Banks for acting quickly to implement the new policy, which will prevent further housing loss that puts the health and survival of low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS at risk.

The emergency rule was published in the City Record on June 20, 2014.
