Petition for Emergency Rental Assistance/ Petición de asistencia de alquiler de emergencia

Mayor Steve Noble, Ulster County Executive Patrick Ryan, City of Kingston Common Council, Ulster County Legislature/ ALCALDE STEVE NOBLE, EJECUTIVO DEL CONDADO DE ULSTER PATRICK RYAN, CONSEJO COMÚN DE LA CIUDAD DE KINGSTON, LEGISLATURA DEL CONDADO DE ULS

We, the people of Ulster County, call upon the county Legislature, County Executive and municipal executives to act immediately to protect and prevent tenants and homeowners from evictions and foreclosures due to economic hardships caused by COVID-19. We ask our elected officials to implement the following housing demands:

  1. Declare an Eviction Moratorium until we have an affordable and accessible vaccine for COVID- 19.

  2. Cancel all rent and mortgage payments for tenants, small businesses, and homeowners experiencing economic hardship until we have an affordable and accessible vaccine for COVID- 19.

  3. Prevent displacement and quickly re-house rent-burdened or homeless individuals through legislation and/or supplemental policies.

  4. Require that at least 25% of all housing stock is guaranteed as permanently affordable housing in Ulster County.

We demand Senate passage of the House of Representatives version of the HEROES Act, which includes $100 billion to cover rent and mortgage payments to prevent homelessness. We are joining the many state and local governments, housing industry associations, advocacy and service organizations to demand short and medium term relief from this housing crisis. Under no circumstances can we tolerate a continuation or increase of homelessness due to this pandemic, and we, as a community, call on county, city, and town officials to support these demands for affordable, safe and secure housing for all residents.

Nosotros, la gente del condado de Ulster, pedimos a la legislatura del condado, a los ejecutivos del condado y ejecutivos municipales que actúen de inmediato para proteger y prevenir a los inquilinos y propietarios de viviendas de desalojos y ejecuciones hipotecarias debido a dificultades económicas causadas por COVID-19. Pedimos a nuestros funcionarios electos que implementen las siguientes demandas de vivienda:


1. Declaren una moratoria de desalojo hasta que tengamos una vacuna asequible y accesible para COVID-19.


2. Cancelen todos los pagos de alquiler e hipoteca para inquilinos, pequeñas empresas y propietarios que experimentan dificultades económicas hasta que tengamos una vacuna accesible y accesible para COVID-19.


3. Prevengan el desplazamiento y vuelvan a alojar rápidamente a las personas sin hogar o con dificultad de pagar rentas a través de la legislación y / o políticas complementarias.


4. Exigir que al menos el 25% de todas las reservas de viviendas estén garantizadas como viviendas permanentemente asequibles en el condado de Ulster.


Exigimos que el Senado apruebe la versión de la Cámara de Representantes de la Ley HEROES, que incluye $ 100 mil millones para cubrir los pagos de alquileres e hipotecas para evitar la falta de vivienda. Nos unimos a los numerosos gobiernos estatales y locales, asociaciones de la industria de la vivienda, organizaciones de defensa y servicios para exigir un alivio a corto y mediano plazo de esta crisis de la vivienda. Bajo ninguna circunstancia podemos tolerar una continuación o un aumento de la falta de vivienda debido a esta pandemia, y nosotros, como comunidad, llamamos a los funcionarios del condado y la ciudad para apoyar estas demandas de viviendas asequibles y seguras para todos los residentes.
