Update on Rent Freeze Program

Disability Rent Increase Exemption (DRIE) recipients whose benefits have been expired for at least six months might be entitled to have their benefits restored, if they have remained eligible to participate in the program.

We have mailed applications to eligible households and authorized third-party tenant representatives. Eligible DRIE recipients should submit a renewal application and all required supporting documentation by January 19, 2018. The application is also available online or at any of the Department of Finance’s five Business Centers.

Little Brothers 2017 Senior Resource Guide

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our first edition of the Little Brothers Senior Guide. Over the past 12 months, in my ministry of friendship and visitation to the sick and shut-ins in Crown Heights, I have witnessed firsthand the struggles our elderly neighbors face daily.

Most seniors currently live on a fixed income with limited resources. And many face major challenges such as chronic health issues, isolation and poor housing conditions.

This local Senior Resource Guide was designed to make it easier for seniors to access free services and discounts where they live, stretching their budget a little bit further.   If you are a caregiver or relative with a senior in your life,     it is my hope that you will find it to be a great resource too.

I am grateful for what is already being done by local churches, non-profits, individuals and businesses for seniors. I would also like to thank all supporters and volunteers that made the printing of this Senior Guide possible.

Together let’s strive to make our community a kinder place to grow older. I wish you all a beautiful Fall season ahead.

A friend of the elderly,

Jérôme Michaux
