"Helping to build better neighborhoods and a better community"

New York State has the Safe Harbor Act for eviction restrictions.
The Tenant Safe Harbor Act provides protection from eviction for renters who have experienced financial hardship during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. Governor Cuomo has also signed an Executive Order detailing further eviction restrictions.  See below:

Executive Order

The Department of Community Development has contracted with the Center for Elder Law & Justice as well as Neighborhood Legal Services to provide legal assistance to residents dealing with evictions during this pandemic.  Call our office for further information (716) 648 - 6216.

The Centers for Disease Control issued a federal eviction moratorium for all renters at risk of being evicted to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. The moratorium went into effect September 4, 2020 and lasts through December 31, 2020. The order applies to states and territories with reported cases of coronavirus. Qualified renters must provide a signed declaration to their landlord (see form below). If able to pay rent, you must still do so.
