Sen. Krueger's 2023 Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors, Session II: “Stay Put for the Long Term: The Senior Citizens Rent Increase Exemption Program"

February 13, 2023

Senator Krueger’s 2023 five-part Virtual Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors will focus on housing for older people. Access to safe affordable housing is critical to ensure that we are able to age well in the community.

On Thursday, February 9th we will share information about the Senior Citizens Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE) Program.

If you--

Live in a rent regulated apartment;

Are at least 62 years of age;

Have an annual income of $50,000 or less;

Pay at least one third of your income on rent; and

Want your current rent to remain the same for as long as you stay in your apartment?

If the answer is yes to all of the above, and you do not already receive SCRIE, you should attend this virtual roundtable to learn more about accessing the program. SCRIE helps older adults be able to afford to stay in their homes. If you already receive SCRIE and have questions, hear answers from the experts about the program.
