Community Meeting on Reducing Housing Costs for Senior Citizens
hosted by the Briarwood Action Network

Held at Samaritan Village, 138-02 Queens Blvd, 2nd Floor

Whether you rent or own, housing costs can be a large portion of a senior citizens’

housing costs, we welcome you to come and meet representatives from NYC
Department of Finance. They will discuss:
•        Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE)
•        Disability Rent Increase Exemption (DRIE)
•        Senior Citizen Homeowners' Exemption (SCHE)
•        And more…
There have been important recent changes to some of the above programs. We hope
