Metropolitan Council on Housing

Joined in January 2005

About Us

The Metropolitan Council on Housing is a membership organization of New York City tenants working to create more humane housing policies. We are the city's oldest tenants union, and have been at the forefront of the most important struggles to preserve and expand New York's affordable housing over the past half-century. We believe that every New Yorker deserves safe, decent, affordable housing, and that housing policies should serve the needs of people, not profit. We educate, organize, empower, and engage tenants across New York City to be the drivers behind developing permanent solutions to our city's chronic affordable housing crisis.
