Dennis Hanratty
(914) 699-1114

Mount Vernon United Tenants, Inc. is a city-wide, membership organization whose primary service area is the South side of Mount Vernon where the majority of sub-standard housing exists. However, we regularly provide our services to the neighboring areas including the North side of Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, Yonkers and even some of the more Northern Westchester towns and cities.

Program efforts fall primarily under three (3) categories:

1) Tenant Action Program (TAP):

MVUT organizes unorganized tenants within individual buildings to fight for increased services; a lessening of landlord harassment and more affordable rents. We typically engage in approximately twelve (12) building organizing campaigns each year. Most of these organizing efforts result in the landlord reinvesting resources into the building. We work closely with the local code-enforcement office to monitor complaints; and where applicable (those buildings covered under the New York State Tenant Protection Laws) we assist tenants and tenant associations in filing administrative complaints to the New York State Homes and Community Renewal (NYS-HCR) agency. We also work with Legal Services of the Hudson Valley to assist tenants and tenant associations in organizing to file affirmative court motions and/or organize rent-withholding efforts designed to force landlords to maintain services via court orders.

2) Homelessness Prevention Program (HPP):

MVUT provides intensive case management for tenants at risk of eviction. We assist tenants with administrative and/or judicial responses to local court actions. We mediate between landlords and tenants; help prepare repayment plans; assist in identifying and collecting resources (financial and other); prepare meritorious defenses; etc. We successfully prevent well over 100 evictions per year.

3) Rehousing Services:

Where the eviction cannot be prevented, we will provide direct rehousing services to a broad group of displaced individuals/families and we rehouse approximately twenty (20) families per year.
