Eviction prevention

If you are in danger of being evicted from your apartment, be sure to seek help.  You can contact one of several not-for-profit agencies in Westchester. The agencies below assist income-eligible families in the likelihood of an eviction from their apartments or homes. This 

Financial assistance is generally limited to one month’s support in a 12-month period, and the family must demonstrate they have the ability to pay their rent going forward. These organizations can help with:

  • One-time rent payment to your landlord or mortgage company
  • Assistance with broker’s fee or security deposit for a permanent new apartment
  • Legal services and support to resolve disputes with landlords
  • Tenant and landlord meditation
  • Utility shut off prevention
