New York City’s Rent Freeze Program (RFP) freezes the rents paid by lower-income elderly and disabled rent-regulated tenants—in many cases for decades—and provides landlords with tax credits to cover the portion of the legal regulated rent not being paid by the tenant.

Tenants must renew their RFP benefits every two years, but some eligible tenants may be unable to complete the renewal process because of their disabilities. When this happened, Cardozo Law's Bet Tzedek Clinic stepped in to help.

Starting November 1, 2017, New York City’s immigrant community no longer has to worry about the threat of deportation when accessing city services, regardless of their immigration status. Thanks to the work of a coalition of immigration activists and legal service providers, including Cardozo School of Law’s Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic, the NYC Council passed a bill prohibiting city agencies from misusing resources to help federal immigration enforcement.

The Kathryn O. Greenberg Immigration Justice Clinic had a big victory this week when one of their clients, “Mr. L.,” a Jamaican national, won his quest to avoid deportation. He was facing the possibility of torture or death if he returned to Jamaica.

Alexandra Jarymowycz ’18, and Steven Ashur ’17, worked on the case beginning in September 2016. They appealed the deportation order that Mr. L. had received when represented by his previous attorney and won the appeal of that decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals in December 2016.
