What is Housing Advocacy?

If you need assistance locating and applying for affordable and accessible housing in Dutchess County:

TRI can provide you resources, such as applications for available housing, assistance in getting your name on a waiting list, or help in sorting through and filling out paperwork.

If you feel you have experienced housing discrimination due to your disability, TRI can provide support in discussing the matter with the landlord. If you want to file a complaint, TRI can provide resources to guide you.
