By Jamila Moore

  • Governor Cuomo returned 250,000 dollars to Brooklyn residents. The state found that overall 52,000 tenants were overcharged roughly 2.8 million dollars.
  • The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development created a new rule to protect victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and dating violence. The department determined that many of the people protected by this rule often times experienced higher rates of eviction or coercion to leave the premises.
