Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption

Since 1975 the Village of Great Neck Plaza has had a program to help eligible senior citizens remain in their apartments with rent abatements. Landlords of these apartments under this program receive 100% of the legal rent. The Village subsidizes the difference of the lease increases.

Eligibility is limited to heads of households, 62 years of age or older, whose total yearly household income does not exceed $24,000, and have been a resident of their Village ETPA (Emergency Tenants Protection Act of 1974) apartment building for at least two years.
