Help with your Rent
Having a hard time paying your rent? You may be able to get help! Call us at 718-771-9000 x7724 if you are eligible for SCRIE, DRiE, or other governmental programs that can freeze your rent. We can also help with other benefits like Food Stamps that can reduce your food bill and leave you with more money for housing.
Being threatened with eviction? We may be able to help. We can help you negotiate a payment plan with your landlord, and identify resources in the community that can help you catch up. For information call Batia at 718-771-9000 x7722.
If you end up in Housing Court, we can help direct you to free legal help and guide you through the process.
You do not need to put up with substandard or dangerous living conditions. If your apartment is not fit to live in, you may be able to compel your landlord to make repairs. Call Batia at 718-771-9000 x7722.
Rents in our area are getting out of control. Crown Heights Jewish Community Council manages several buildings where apartments are rented at affordable rates.
