The proposed rules would amend Chapter 52 of Title 19 of the Rules of the City of New York to:

• Establish requirements for eligibility for SCRIE and DRIE benefits based on the applicant’s status and household income,

• Establish criteria for the types of apartments which are eligible for SCRIE and DRIE benefits,

• Establish criteria for the determination of SCRIE and DRIE abatement amounts set forth in Rent Increase Exemption Orders, and,

• Establish an application process, including deadlines.

In addition, the proposed rules would provide definitions for relevant terms in Section 52-01 and move the current Rent Increase Exemption Orders provisions from Section 52-01 to new Sections 52-02 and 52-03.
