In March , the governor and legislature agreed to include  “source of income” protection   for tenants across New York State in their final budget agreement - a huge victory for more integrated communities in New York State. New York Appleseed has been a proud member of Ban Income Bias NY, which has been advocating for a statewide law for years. Landlord discrimination against prospective tenants with Housing Choice Vouchers and other forms of non-traditional income has been a significant barrier to low-income communities and communities of color. The coalition will be working in 2020 to make sure that the new law is enforced.
