- State Data Overview
Across New York, there is a shortage of rental homes affordable and available to extremely low income households (ELI), whose incomes are at or below the poverty guideline or 30% of their area median income (AMI). Many of these households are severely cost burdened, spending more than half of their income on housing. Severely cost burdened poor households are more likely than other renters to sacrifice other necessities like healthy food and healthcare to pay the rent, and to experience unstable housing situations like evictionsKeyFacts959,659Or28%Renter households that are extremely low income$25,180Maximum income for 4-person extremely low income household (state level)-612,854Shortage of rental homes affordable and available for extremely low income renters$63,976Annual household income needed to afford a two-bedroom rental home at HUD's Fair Market Rent.70%Percent of extremely low income renter households with severe cost burden

Across the country, homeless service providers are struggling to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

An opinion piece in City Limits argues that the purpose of the New York City housing court, which is one of the busiest courts in the United States, is antithetical to the mitigation of COVID-19.

The Tenant Safe Harbour Act was passed by the legislature and signed by the governor on 6/30. It suspends eviction enforcement for all those that can prove financial hardship due to COVID-19 until the public health emergency ends. Evictions in cases of hardship can still be filed, and monetary settlements made, but evictions, where COVID-19 hardship is proven, can't be enforced. The Tenant Safe Harbour Act offers protection that tenants can use to argue their case in court, but does not protect them from going to court in the first place. Courts began accepting eviction filings by mail on June 20, but most hearings (with the exception of evictions filed before the state of emergency) suspended until August 5. The Governor issued an executive order on May 7 prohibiting the initiation of eviction proceedings for all nonpayment evictions involving COVID-19 hardship and required the landlord to provide an affidavit that they weren't violating an eviction protections if they chose to file. On July 7, the governor altered that executive order, removing the requirement on landlords to submit an affidavit asserting their tenant had not experienced COVID-19 hardship, claiming that they were now covered by the Tenant Safe Harbour Act. He maintained such protections for commercial tenants and tolled all deadlines to prosecute to Aug. 5. Therefore, some residential evictions can begin to be heard as early as Aug. 5, but enforcement in cases of COVID-19 hardship is still prohibited until Aug. 20.

In response to Governor Cuomo’s quiet rollback of eviction protections in early July, a move that is but one in a long line of increasingly conflicting eviction policies, the director of litigation and housing at Legal Services NYC exclaimed: “It’s ridiculous, I’ve been in the industry for 32 years, and no, I can’t think of anything ever like this.” (July 10) Local experts believe the 63 residential eviction cases that have been processed by housing courts in Brooklyn and Queens since Governor Cuomo’s broadest eviction moratorium expired on June 20 are simply taste of what is to come. A researcher and professor at the Graduate Center at CUNY predicts the coming wave of evictions “is likely going be as bad as the great depression and probably worse.”
