    As someone who is new to DRIE, I was looking for information and was directed here nyc.gov.
    I notice there is a hearing set for amendments to a proposed rule but I do not see the rule, or how to download it.
    I also was directed to the Legal. Affairs Dept.
    As you can see from the description below there is no mention of the proposed amendment in the paragraph. How can anyone comment if wr can’t find it?
    It continues with the where and how.

    “The Department of Finance proposes amendments to the rules for the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (“SCRIE”) and Disability Rent Increase Exemption (“DRIE”) Programs, which provide eligible senior citizens and persons with disabilities with exemptions from certain rent increases and property owners with a corresponding abatement of real property taxes. DOF will hold a public hearing on the proposed rule. The hearing will take place at 11:00am on October 22, 2020. The hearing will be conducted remotely through Webex Event Center. ”

    Please tell me where to find it as it is already close to deadline. Thank you for attending to this matter.
    Best,
    Rhonda Jackson

    Because you replaced a whole set of codes, which contain legalese, as well as new terms, and whose domain is spread between HPD and DOF, the city should have clearly demanded a synopsis (in the form of a chart, a table, bulleted lists, etc.) so that tenants–who are not lawyers or experts in real estate–could have more clearly understood what changes would affect them. In the last 4 days, I left emails or phone messages for 3 DOF personnel in an attempt to clear up confusion on multiple points, and never heard back from anyone. Confusion is not in anyone’s interest!

    As a Drie recipient for many years, this is the most valuable program you offer to New Yorkers. I have no idea what is actually changing in this new documents and what it means to me as an average person. It is so important to me and I wish I could reasonably comment.
