From June through September 2020, CBI facilitated a groundbreaking effort to build agreement among New York City landlord and tenant groups on ways to prevent the COVID economic crisis from leading to a wave of evictions across the city. By some estimates, more than 250,000 households in the city are at risk of losing their homes once current state and Federal eviction moratoriums are lifted. Convened by Enterprise, the group of 15 leaders and experts in the rental property business, tenant services, and tenant advocacy reached agreement on both a set of policies to recommend to New York City and state government as well as a pilot project for rental property managers and tenant groups to work together to help groups of tenants at risk of eviction from a rental building.
