Former Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the launch of a Fair Housing Enforcement Program – an initiative to uncover discrimination in rental and home sale transactions. Additionally, the Division of Human Rights and the Department of State proposed new regulations to strengthen the state's housing enforcement efforts on behalf of all New Yorkers. These initiatives are the latest aggressive actions to protect the state's most vulnerable individuals from illegal housing practices. For further information, see below links:
