WHAT WE DO
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. organizes and empowers residents of New York City to hold negligent landlords and property managers accountable for unsafe living conditions through community advocacy, outreach, organizing effective tenant associations, providing long-term technical assistance, and connecting individuals and tenant groups to legal services and housing benefits.
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E.'s goal is to end tenant exploitation in order to enable low-income community residents to remain in their homes and to ensure that those homes are safe and affordable.

This organization has been God-sent to my family and I! I am currently going through legal action with my landlord, who wants us out to rent for more than double to others. This organization has helped me with the process and located legal representation to help me stay in my home in upper Manhattan.
Pa'lante has helped me tremendously with my housing situation. I'm forever grateful for the work that they do. My apartment was infested with rats and mold. No other organization helped. Due to Pa'lante's hard work and dedication they helped me transfer to a newly renovated apartment. Pa'lante cares about tenants and they have my love and support.
Palante is extremely needed in West Harlem; a neighborhood in constant threat of having residents pushed out by unscrupulous developers and landlords. It continues to do its part in providing assistance and direction to the community.
P.A.’L.A.N.T.E. Harlem is based on New York’s sense of diversity, the idea that we as New York City residents, can rely upon each other and work as one to improve the lives of all in our community.
Your individual contribution, combined with the volunteer work of others, creates a permanent community resource for our people Consider what secure, safe, clean, and affordable housing means to the well-being of our community.
HAVE YOUR VOICE HEARD
Your voice holds so much power and is required for change within the fight against tenant exploitation and preserving affordable housing.
If you are interested in organizing tenants in your building, build a tenant association that can apply the most pressure to make a landlord provide services, make repairs, and stop the harassment.
