Mid-Hudson Valley Tenant Protection Fact Sheets


A series of fact sheets was created in partnership with For the Many (formerly known as Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson), to support their work in the Mid-Hudson Valley region to advance policies that build more stable communities and protect renters from unfair evictions and predatory landlords. Key findings include:

  • Housing insecurity is a region-wide issue: 54 percent of renter households in the Mid-Hudson Valley are rent-burdened. Black and Latinx renters are especially impacted.
  • The majority of renters in Beacon, Kingston, Newburgh, New Paltz, and Poughkeepsie are rent-burdened – meaning that they spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing costs.
  • In these places, Black, Latino, and other people of color are much more likely to be rent-burdened compared to white renters. In New Paltz, 100 percent of Black renters are rent-burdened compared to 68 percent of white renters.

You can download fact sheets for the following places: Ulster County, Beacon, Kingston, Newburgh, New Paltz, and Poughkeepsie.
