UNHP is expanding our services at the Northwest Bronx Resource Center to include assistance with the NYC Rent Freeze Program for Bronx senior citizens and people with disabilities to help insure that they can continue to remain in their apartments despite fixed and low-incomes.

“UNHP has emerged as a thought leader on multi-family housing distress-a key issue facing all boroughs of New York City.”
